We unite humanities scholars to conduct innovative research, support student success and enhance community engagement.

Poised on the edge of the booming Miami metropolis and the majestic but imperiled Everglades, we foster an "urban" focus that emphasizes the interaction between humans, our built environment and the wilderness next door.

Working with internal and external partners, we aspire to serve as a model for how the humanities can develop innovative engagement strategies to respond to the key issues of our times through a humanistic lens.
