Enriching the lives of Marylanders and strengthening the fabric of our state since 1973. That’s Maryland Humanities.
Maryland Humanities creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities that inspire all Marylanders to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities.
We envision a Maryland where the humanities are understood as central to everyday life because they help us reflect on the past, understand the present, and shape the future. The result will be a state where thoughtful and informed Marylanders are committed to a lifetime of learning that invigorates and strengthens our democracy through an open-minded exchange of ideas.
- In the power of lifelong learning in the humanities to create thoughtful citizens and thus a stronger democracy.
- That the humanities offer a rich source of knowledge and an invaluable set of skills that promote rigorous thinking and challenge people to consider new ideas and alternative points of view.
- In respect for others, and we celebrate diverse backgrounds and opinions.
- In collaboration with others because we know that partnerships help build strong communities.
