UGA Humanities Council

The University of Georgia Humanities Council is designed to weave humanities practices into the culture of campus, and to make visible and valuable the diversity of these practices to our learning community.

The Humanities Council has begun its work and this page will be updated with news, opportunities, and other information in the near future.
