The Hagan Foundation Center for the Humanities is dedicated to integrating liberal arts and humanities with the technical programs offered at Spokane Community College. The Center is also a significant way for SCC to contribute to the community's cultural life. The Hagan Foundation Center for the Humanities is a place where a community of minds can gather to explore various perspectives and ideas.

The Center’s mission is to: - Infuse liberal arts and humanities across the campus curriculum. - Create a humanities-based model for academic inquiry. - Instill critical thinking skills and an appreciation for the humanities in SCC students. - Raise community awareness of the scope and variety of campus programs. - Enrich the community with humanities offerings. - Foster a life-long love of literacy and learning.

The center is funded by a growing Community Colleges of Spokane Foundation Endowment. The endowment campaign, which has been generously supported by the community, has been augmented by a National Endowment for the Humanities (matching) Challenge Grant. The foundation received a substantial gift from the Hagan Foundation for which the center is named.
