The Center for the Humanities is an interdisciplinary research center with the primary mission of advancing the vitality and quality of humanities research and teaching at Oregon State University. Our Resident Research Fellowship Program supports influential, innovative scholarship by OSU faculty pursuing projects related to the humanities, broadly defined. We also sponsor activities on campus and in the community that explore challenging issues across cultural and disciplinary boundaries and demonstrate the relevance of the humanities to a wider public. The Center supports a diverse and inclusive vision of the humanities, and is a member of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes.
