The Center for the Humanities has two objectives. The first objective is to provide visibility and focus for humanities activities at UMSL and the second objective is to attract and channel resources for the support of interdisciplinary humanistic inquiry.
The Center for the Humanities is the only center of its kind in the region. The center sponsors conferences, symposiums and lectures. Opened in 1992, the center also houses and funds one of the country's premier journals of social theory and practices, Theory and Society.
Financial support enhances current programs and assists in the establishment of new academic and community initiatives.
