In late 2007, Glenn Hubert’s generous contribution of $370,000 allowed the Learning Center to completely renovate its Center for Advanced Learning, Writing and Math Labs; adding new furniture, equipment and cutting-edge software. All three spaces, located on the first floor of Gamer Hall, doubled in size. More than 35 computer stations were added throughout the facility, all with software that will better assist students with reading, writing and math comprehension skills. In recognition of this generous gift, the Center was renamed the Glenn Hubert Learning Center and reopened on January 29, 2008.
Glenn Hubert was inspired to help Barry University students excel academically by his time as an educator in the Miami-Dade County Public School system. “I believe in providence and feel my attention was directed to Barry for a reason,” he said. “As an educator, I knew that improvements to the Learning Center, a place where students can enhance academic skills, would be essential to their success in higher education. I wanted the Learning Center to be a place where the most students would receive the benefits of my gift. I am happy knowing that my gift will continue to grow and bear fruit in the lives of many Barry students.”
Now, Glenn Hubert wishes to further enhance student learning at the Glenn Hubert Learning Center by establishing The Glenn Hubert Endowed Scholarship Fund with a $50,000 gift.
