Center for the Humanities

Visit Organization Website

The Center for the Humanities is your connection to the outstanding humanities research at Oregon State University.

We support the scholarly and creative work of OSU faculty and students in the humanities, arts, and interpretive social sciences. We offer a space and environment for interdisciplinary discussion of enduring human questions and timely critical issues. And we collaborate with organizations on campus and across Oregon to provide opportunities for you to engage with ideas that matter.

We value curiosity, critical thinking, imagination, and thoughtful attentiveness to all the ways the human species acts within and upon the world.
