The UCI Humanities Center

Where Ideas Matter

We foster innovative collaborations that:

  • Spark new knowledge: The Humanities Center provides our faculty and graduate students with financial resources, staffing support, and grant-writing consultation as they pursue human-centered responses to the grand challenges of our time.
  • Foster vibrant intellectual communities: The Humanities Center fosters the ethos of interdisciplinary collaboration by sponsoring learning communities, public events, conferences and research centers.
  • Inspire conversations that matter: The Humanities Center is driven by the combined creative power of our faculty and students, internationally renowned visiting fellows, and members of the public passionately learning about and debating ideas that matter.
