The Center for the Humanities coordinates and sponsors interdisciplinary activities and events in the humanities. By focusing on local and global issues to foster the various inquiries and creative projects that make up the disciplines called "the humanities," it is a useful resource for scholars and students seeking to understand our identity, our values, our past and future, and how we relate to the world around us.
Their support of public scholarly engagement has helped graduate students and faculty create mutually rewarding partnerships with public schools, prisons, senior centers, hospitals, community gardens, and more. Championing the public humanities, the Center is guided and inspired by the Wisconsin Idea, the principle that the university’s impact on people’s lives should reach beyond the classroom.
