audience at an event in JRC 101

Center for the Humanities

Welcome! Thank you for visiting the Center for the Humanities. 

We advocate for the humanities, humanistic perspectives, and interdisciplinary exploration. We nurture intellectual connection and community. We fund research. We support literacy and the arts in our local schools. We are passionate about what we do because the humanities are essential to a caring, loving, inclusive, honest, and curious life, both as individuals and as members of a public whole.

We need your vote!
