The Center for the Humanities encourages excellence in humanities research, teaching, and campus and public programming at Drake University.
Housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Center serves the entire campus by initiating humanities-centered projects and activities and by funding proposals made by faculty.
The Center strives not only to provide monetary support, but also to foster an environment of vibrant, ongoing, and collaborative inquiry.
Drake faculty, at any rank, in any department or program in the University, whose work as teachers, scholars, or in academic service significantly involves humanistic inquiry, broadly construed, are eligible to join the Humanities Center Faculty. Those interested in doing so should email the director expressing their wish to join the Humanities Center Faculty.
