The Calgary Institute for the Humanities was established as a university-level research institute at the University of Calgary in 1976. The Institute is responsible to the Vice-President (Research). It fosters advanced study and research in a broad range of subjects reflecting its multi-disciplinary and multi-faculty orientation.
The Humanities Institute supports research in traditional humanities as well as in philosophical and historical aspects of the social sciences, sciences, arts, and professional studies. The humanities are not conceived as a specific group of academic disciplines, but include all forms of study that examine what is human.
In addition to its role at the university, the Calgary Institute for the Humanities encourages humanistic study outside of the university and dialogue between the academic community and the general public. Programs of the Institute include fellowship appointments, independent research initiatives by university faculty, strategic research projects, and community partnerships.

An ad hoc Steering Committe was set up in November of 1977 to advise on the University of Calgary's future role in the area of aging and gerontology and, under its auspices, a one-day in-house workshop was held in February of 1978. This was to enable faculty members with an interest in this area to exchange information and identify activities and problems which could be pursued within the research, teaching, and service roles of the university.
Arising out of the recommendations of the workshop, the former President, Dr. Cochrane, established a President's Committee on Aging and Gerontology in July 1978. The Committee had explicit terms of reference and the following membership: Dr. D. B. Black (Educational Psychology - Chairman; Ms. P. Allen (Executive Director, Kerby Centre); Dr. C. Emes (Physical Education); Mrs. H. McDonald (Past President, Alberta Council on Aging); Dr. G. Rosenberg (Faculty of Medicine); Professor A. E. D. Schonfield (Psychology); Ms. R. Troyer (Student representative); Mr. D. Yule (Faculty of Continuing Education); Dr. W. Zwerman (Sociology).
The committee met on four occasions and, on its recommendation, a coordinator was appointed in November 1978 for a ten-month term to: compile a list of all university research, teaching and service programs in the area of aging and geriatrics; to liaise with local committees and groups on behalf of the committee; to act as an information source for the community; and to publish an in-house newsletter.
Chairmen of the committee were: Donald B. Black (Educational Psychology) 1979-1980; Lawrence A. Fisher (Faculty of Medicine) 1980-1983; A. E. David Schonfield (Department of Psychology) 1983-1986. No information is available for the President's Committee on Aging and Gerontology after 1986.
