About Us

The North Carolina Humanities Council develops among North Carolinians an understanding of and appreciation for the humanities that can transform the way they see themselves and their communities. In support of these goals, the North Carolina Humanities Council is committed to the following: an interdisciplinary approach to the humanities; dialogue; discovery and understanding of the humanities–culture, identity, and history; respect for individual community members and community values; humanities scholarship and scholars to develop humanities perspectives; cultural diversity and inclusiveness; and informed and active citizenship as an outgrowth of new awareness of self and community.
