The Humanities Institute establishes programs and provides funding for faculty in the humanities and their collaborators in other fields of study, fostering collaboration among scholars in the humanistic disciplines, and promoting cross- and interdisciplinary research and other creative activity. It also supports joint faculty-student research and activities, and builds partnerships with the public community outside Wake Forest. In so doing, the Institute aims to advance the university's commitment to education and scholarship that is pro humanitate and to underscore the value of the humanities for the common good.
