The Citizen University ®
This is one of the projects supported by the Foundation whose purpose, among others, is to consolidate more the Citizen University®. This unique concept in contemporary Morocco is rooted in ancient historical practices and great traditions that have marked the epic of the Moroccan university. It consists of a series of seminars, open to all, with no prerequisites, designed as introductory and awareness raising courses about Morocco’s socio-political, managerial and economic realities.
The seminars, spanning over three months, are provided free of charge, once a year, in cities where HEM is present. An "auditor's certificate" is awarded to individuals who attend at least 80% of the seminars.
Reading Clubs of The Citizen University ®
The HEM Foundation aims to expand access to knowledge and the culture of debates through the Reading Clubs of the Citizen University ® termed CLUC.
Created in September 2014 as an extension of the the Citizen University ® and in partnership with the French Institute of Morocco (IFM), the Reading Clubs of the Citizen University ® aim to promote access to literature and reading and share knowledge, ideas and questions about social issues in Morocco with a diverse public.
Reading Clubs of the Citizen University ® are held in encounters with 4 authors per year (alternately in Arabic and French) and in all common locations HEM - IFM.
The Citizen University ® Press
The HEM Foundation aims to expand access to knowledge and the culture of debates through the Citizen University ® Press.
