The Institute for the Humanities engages members of the off-campus community with our events and workshops. Everything we host, including academic talks and workshops on campus, are free and open to the public.  Keep any eye on our webpage and for our fliers downtown!  We also serve teachers with CEU-granting workshops and bring speakers, visitors, and programs to off-campus locations.  Look for our annual Writer in Residence and International Film Festival in the Spring. For the most up-to-date information on our community events, like us on facebook and follow us on twitter.
