About Us

Our Mission

Building a thoughtful, literate, and engaged society.

Who We Are

The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is one of 56 state humanities councils affiliated with and supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). MHC is a nonprofit organization with statewide responsibility. MHC collaborates with organizations and individuals to inspire community conversations, forge connections, and strengthen authentic, diverse voices across Minnesota, especially those left out or marginalized.

How We Work

MHC offers a new way to think about our future grounded in the humanities. We help people listen, connect, and understand each other better—because we know isolation and division are dangerous. The Humanities Center’s approach affirms we’re all in this together—using philosophy, literature, history, civics, language, and more we focus on what unites us not divides us. Through our workshops, traveling exhibits, documentaries, published works and more, we engage people all over the state in a variety of ways — and have for nearly 50 years.

The Humanities Center is committed to a diverse work environment—applicants from all communities are encouraged to apply.
