Since 1975, the New York Council for the Humanities has actively nurtured the role of the humanities in the intellectual and cultural life of New York State. As a not-for-profit, independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Council works with more than 4,000 cultural institutions such as libraries, historical sites, museums, art galleries, colleges and universities, and community centers to bring innovative, thought-provoking programs to over a quarter of a million New Yorkers annually.
Through our statewide collaborations, and our own programs and services that encourage imaginative thinking and critical inquiry, we work to ensure that the humanities are present in the intellectual and cultural life of every New Yorker. We see the humanities as fundamental to our understanding of ourselves as human beings and of our role in and responsibility to society.
