The Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment unites humanities scholars to conduct innovative research, support student success and enhance community engagement.
Beyond the Ivory Tower
South Florida, and Miami in
Poised on the edge of the booming Miami metropolis and the majestic but imperiled Everglades, our “urban” focus emphasizes the importance of recognizing and understanding the interaction between humans, their built environment
Working with internal and external partners, we aim to be a model for how the humanities can develop innovative engagement strategies to respond to the key issues of our times through a humanistic lens.
