Giving to the Dresher Center for the Humanities

From the Director

Since 2007, the James T. and Virginia M. Dresher Center for the Humanities has brought scholars together to examine and explore, to address enduring questions, and to ask new ones. Through our work, we showcase the best the humanities offer today and nurture a generation of humanities thinkers for the future.

We do it because the humanities matter – and they matter because they help us understand and address some of humankind’s most pressing concerns.

Accomplishing this work would not be possible without continuing support from the community. A gift to the Dresher Center for the Humanities will help:

  • Produce public events that illustrate the richness of contemporary work in philosophy, history, culture, language, media, literature, and the arts.
  • Fund fellowships for faculty and graduate students to accelerate their research, as well as the time, space, and opportunity for collaboration and exchange.
  • Forge community partnerships to address issues of equity and social justice.
  • Support interdisciplinary communities of scholars who address crucial humanities questions
