To build a thoughtful, literate, engaged society.
Who We Are
The Minnesota Humanities Center is a nonprofit that collaborates with organizations and individuals to inspire community conversations, forge deep connections, and illuminate authentic, diverse voices across Minnesota, especially those left out or marginalized. We work to build a thoughtful, literate, and engaged society through education, partnerships, and public programs.
How We Work
The Humanities Center offers a new way to think about our future—grounded in the humanities. Our state is rapidly changing and growing even more diverse. The Humanities Center’s approach affirms we’re all in this together—using philosophy, literature, art, music, history and language—we focus on what unites us not divides us. The Humanities Center helps people listen, connect, and understand each other better. We gather all voices and make clear that all narratives, including those that have been long absent from our education and public awareness, belong to the great human story.
The Humanities Center is committed to a diverse work environment — applicants from all communities are encouraged to apply.
