Humanities for All: A National Survey of Public Engagement in the Humanities in Higher Education

The National Humanities Alliance Foundation is currently conducting a national study of public engagement in the humanities at institutions of higher education. This national study surveys the range of ways that higher ed faculty, students, and administrators have connected with diverse communities through the humanities over the past decade (short abstract available here).

We are reaching out to the leadership of humanities centers and institutes to ask for examples of initiatives that have created opportunities for public engagement in the humanities involving higher ed faculty and students. If you have been involved with any projects that fit this description, we would be grateful if you could please send their project titles, names of project directors, short descriptions, periods of activity, and links to online materials (if applicable) to Daniel Fisher, Project Director ( by October 25, 2017.

This project has received generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
