Applications Open for 23-24 National Humanities Leadership Council

Preparing our nation’s next generation of leaders to face the challenges of the twenty-first century is an imperative shared by educators at every level.

This is especially true at colleges and universities where students not only look to pursue a liberal education but also to discover their passions and hone skills for future careers.

The National Humanities Center has established a National Humanities Leadership Council to help prepare a select group of students with humanities-based leadership skills. Drawn exclusively from nominations advanced by NHC-sponsoring institutions, students accepted to the Council participate in a unique series of interactive experiences with leading humanities scholars and leaders from across the country. In round tables and discussion sessions, they explore the essential importance of humanistic perspectives in addressing the concerns of contemporary society. And, based on the consensus of the Council membership, they may also focus on specific projects and engagement with the communities at their institutions.
