The Carroll University Center for the Humanities stimulates engagement in Humanities-based content and methodologies across our undergraduate population. The Center supports Humanities-based inquiry by promoting a model we call “Lean In/Push Out”: a two-fold process that encourages scholars and students to “lean in” to contemplative practices and then to “push out” their research and insights to the public. By sponsoring annual events, such as our Student to Scholar Lecture series, as well as through providing fellowship opportunities and supporting relevant campus initiatives, the Center for the Humanities strives to augment the undergraduate experience and to highlight Carroll University’s liberal arts heritage. Ultimately the Center seeks to motivate all undergraduates, regardless of major, to engage in Humanities-based inquiry in order to understand the human experience more deeply and in order to forge empathetic connections throughout the university, the community, and our ever-changing world.
