“I am so thankful for the sense of renewal these teacher institutes give me. They rejuvenate me after a year of ‘being in the trenches’ and bring back my passion for teaching again.”
Rachel SchuldtTeacher and IHC Teacher Institute participant
The vision of the IHC is that the humanities inspire a more literate, tolerant and intellectually inquisitive Idaho citizenry, better able to embrace life’s possibilities.
For more than 40 years, the Idaho Humanities Council’s mission has been to provide opportunities to deepen public understanding of human experience by connecting people with ideas. The Council has met its mission by awarding grants to organizations statewide to develop humanities projects and programs on the local level. In addition, the Council has sponsored programs of its own to enhance awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the humanities.
