Uplifting Our Work and Shared Humanity
Advances in science and technology must accompany a thoughtful and critical understanding of the humans impacted by modern transformations. Despite fiscal and rhetorical challenges to the contrary, we believe the humanities are absolutely critical in creating a functional and equitable 21st-century society.
Well beyond campus boundaries, the entire Gaines Center community is proud to advocate for arts and cultural education, research, and funding. Whether it's supporting Kentucky small businesses, or visiting D.C. legislators with the National Humanities Alliance, the Center works diligently to ensure a bright future for humanities in all its forms.
