About Us

The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz is a hub for new directions in research and teaching, cross-discipline collaboration, and public engagement. Our work focuses on Engaging the Public, Incubating Research, Cultivating Critical Thinkers, and Rethinking Graduate Education.
We are committed to engaging with the broadest community possible—from first-generation students and scholars in every discipline, to local residents and anyone interested in making sense of our complex world.
