Lois Smedick Humanities Research Group Endowment



"Why Humanities?"


The Humanities Research Group promotes research in all disciplines in the humanities.  It seeks to promote communication and exchange of ideas among these and other disciplines, and to promote research and communication across the faculty and across the University.  HRG typically supports events which have other supporting partners, and we welcome partnerships locally, regionally, within our nation and beyond in support of our mandate.
