About Us

Centers for the Humanities exist across the country, and each makes a unique contribution. Ours is distinguished by its interest in how the humanities can and should interact with the urban life that surrounds us. Florida International University is part of Miami not an adjunct to it. We see our mission as tied to the continuing development of humanist endeavors at our university and in our community, including expanding the notion of the humanities beyond its traditional bounds, and we see our strength in a commitment to engaging faculty, students, staff, and community with the humanities.
