The Institute for the Humanities

Our mission is to deepen synergies between the humanities, the arts and other regions of the university, to carry forward the heritage of the humanities, and to bring the voices of the humanities to public life.


We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute of Humanities needs you—because the world needs Victors.
