The mission of Oklahoma Humanities is to strengthen communities by helping Oklahomans learn about the human experience, understand new perspectives, and participate knowledgeably in civic life.
OHC is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We strive to stimulate discussion, encourage new perspectives, and to actively engage people in the humanities disciplines, such as history, literature, philosophy, and ethics. The Oklahoma Humanities Council promotes meaningful public engagement with the humanities for Oklahomans of all ages. We accomplish that mission through our own programs and through grants for public humanities programming and research. We strive to support humanities education and a vibrant cultural life for all Oklahomans.
