Thinking Out Loud
Developing insight into human thought, culture, and history—insight that connects deep knowledge to the way we live.
As change continues to impact the health and wellbeing of our communities, we find ourselves at a moment of reflection in the Humanities Center. As we grapple with the ongoing health crisis presented by COVID-19, coupled with the historic protests around the death of George Floyd and many other Black Americans, we align our efforts with others across the University to support our Black students, staff and faculty. We celebrate the contributions of Black scholars and artists whose works add to the vibrant cultural life the Humanities Center seeks to uphold and celebrate.
Through our efforts, we continue to engage in the productive dialogue that ensures diversity, equity and inclusion across our campus and community, and we welcome input from that community on how we can best serve these goals.
