Florida International University’s commitment to the humanities began with the establishment of the university in the 1970s. Since then it has fostered dynamic programs in the arts, sponsored conferences and lectures on a variety of humanist topics, and made issues relating to the humanities key elements across its curriculum. The Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment is only the latest in a series of humanities related efforts undertaken by FIU. It continues an important tradition and at the same time breaks new ground as it forges partnerships with groups throughout the community to promote the humanities not simply on the FIU campus but across South Florida.

All of us at the Center appreciate your taking the time to visit our website, and we hope to see you soon at some of the events that we have planned for the next year. Thank you for your interest, and please contact us with any thoughts you have on our efforts.
