The Miami University Humanities Center brings together faculty, students, and the public for conversation and debate about human experience.  The mission of the center is to recruit, retain, and energize outstanding faculty; foster flexible, collaborative inquiry in and beyond the humanities; cultivate a new generation of scholars and leaders; and demonstrate the value of the humanities to liberal arts education and society more generally.

The center offers over a dozen distinct programs for research, cross-disciplinary inquiry, creative teaching, and public engagement; it organizes, funds, and advertises scores of annual lectures, readings, workshops, and symposia; it advocates for the value of the humanities and coordinates capacity-building initiatives; and it is a resource for diverse institutional groups, providing funding, oversight, logistical support, and means of dissemination.  

Events sponsored by the Humanities Center are free and open to the public.
