SUPPORT THE HUMANITIES CENTER

Fulfilling the Center's commitment to students, faculty, and the public would not be possible without the participation of friends and donors. The gift provided by John W. Altman created the Center and its highly successful Altman Fellows Program.  Now, additional contributions are needed to sustain the Center’s other programs and new initiatives.
