Establishing the Humanities Institute

Endowment for programming in a new Westchester County Humanities Institute that explores humanities themes through the lens of the immigrant experience.

The Westchester Community College (WCC) Humanities Institute proposes to be a campus-wide initiative that supports the research and scholarship of faculty, students, and members of the community by developing and supporting events (including conferences, speaker series, reading series, exhibits, films, and community partnerships) that explore and celebrate the humanities from the perspective of the immigrant experience in a globalized world. The WCC Humanities Institute will shift and expand the study of the humanities from a traditional, western perspective to a multi-cultural lens in order to promote global understanding. The mission of the WCC Humanities Institute is to advance pluralistic and international approaches to humanities education by illuminating the differences and similarities within the disciplines of literature, language, history, philosophy, cultural studies, and communication.
