Humanities for All

What is it? Humanities for All, an initiative of the National Humanities Alliance Foundation, showcases the full range of these higher ed-based publicly engaged humanities initiatives, presenting a cross-section of over 1,500 undertaken over the past decade from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This collection includes a wide range of humanities projects that engage with diverse publics as audiences and as partners. The cataloged publicly engaged humanities initiatives fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • 1. Outreach: scholarly programming and media for a general audience, including public lectures, op-eds, and podcasts;
  • 2. Engaged research: research initiatives in which higher education faculty and students partner with community members, including community-based research;
  • 3.Engaged teaching: higher education coursework involving community engagement, including service learning and project-based learning beyond the university;
  • 4.Engaged public programming: public programming in which the primary objective is not the transfer of knowledge but the creation of an experience, such as community conversation programming; and
  • 5.The infrastructure of engagement: institutional structures that support engaged scholarship, including degree programs, centers, funding opportunities, digital technologies, and curriculum reorientation initiatives.

When viewed together, these 1,500 initiatives illustrate the possibilities of the humanities for everyone involved: building and strengthening communities; creating innovative and practical learning experiences for undergraduate students, graduate students, and people of all ages and backgrounds; offering forums for meaningful dialogue; and advancing humanities scholarship that broadens our understanding of ourselves, our nation, and our world.

Why use it? A wide range of humanities projects that engage with diverse publics as audiences and as partners
