The Center for Public Humanities has grown out of Messiah College's devotion to the humanities and desire to partner with our broader community. Our work positions us as dynamic partners in the most important civic, scientific and cultural conversations of the 21st century. These partnerships encourage us to thrive through meaningful inquiry, conversation and action. Our collective body of students, faculty and community members consistently strive to become fully present community members.
Housed in Boyer Hall, the Center for Public Humanities advances Ernest L. Boyer's Scholarship of Engagement that celebrates discovery, integration, and the sharing and application of knowledge. We invite you to join us in deepening our understanding of the humanities through an array of programs and events.
