The Institute for Humanist Studies (IHS) is a think tank whose mission is to promote greater public awareness, understanding, and support for humanism. The Institute specializes in pioneering new technology and methods for the advancement of humanism..
The IHS Grant Fund supports the most promising and innovative projects in the humanist and freethought communities. IHS provides free Web hosting, e-mail and tech support to humanist and related websites. IHS developed and now operates the Continuum of Humanist Education, the world's first interactive, online curriculum centered around humanist thought.
Through our free weekly e-zine, Humanist Network News, IHS delivers news and opinion to our supporters and subscribers. The IHS Public Policy department lobbies the New York legislature on issues of concern to freethinkers. As a founding member of the Secular Coalition for America, IHS has now brought this lobbying initiative to the U.S. Congress.
