Mission Statement

Established at the University of Louisville in the academic year 1997, CCHS is charged with enhancing humanistic scholarship, research, creative activity, teaching, and public awareness at the University of Louisville, in the Louisville metropolitan area and, in collaboration with other universities, colleges, and humanities organizations, throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky. To this end, CCHS offers a variety of programs, some focused internally on faculty research, but many designed to appeal to the public and to help make the University a cultural center for the city and the Commonwealth. Within its means, CCHS also offers support in funding, publicity, networking, and other forms for humanities-oriented projects undertaken by departments, programs, faculty working groups, and community groups with related missions. It especially encourages interdisciplinary work and collaboration among individuals, among existing units within the university, and between U of L and other institutions--not only other colleges and universities but also public schools, museums, arts groups, and other humanities organizations.
