Humanities Center

Humanities International Studies

The Elgin Community College Humanities Center encourages and fosters an understanding of the central importance of the humanities in all areas of academic and creative inquiry within a framework of diversity, global and international perspectives. It encourages discussion between scholars in the humanities and sciences to discover areas of common concern and interest while paying attention to the unique perspectives of each. It seeks to engage scholars and community members in exploring the most profound questions of human concern across disciplinary boundaries to clarify and pursue some of life’s most perplexing problems. We also co-sponsor special events across campus and serve as a resource for the Humanities. Our activities are open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the District 509 community.
