Humanities Division

 

The Humanities Belong to Everyone The Humanities are our cultural and intellectual heritage - the sum of human experience, thought, and expression. They give us knowledge about the past, insight about the present, and wisdom for the future. They teach us about others and help us to know ourselves
-Oregon Council for the Humanities
