The Institute for the Humanities
We facilitate work that examines humanities traditions broadly across space and time, deepens synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and brings the voices of the humanities to public life.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute for the Humanities needs your support.
