Engaged Humanities

The Engaged Humanities Network (EHN) is committed to the pursuit of more inclusive, interconnected, and just communities and institutions. Toward these ends, the network seeds, supports, and fosters exchanges across publicly engaged research, teaching, and creative projects.

Collaborating Across Communities

The EHN is open to all. Scholars, teachers, students, artists, and community leaders who make up the network apply their knowledge and skills to serve the public good and develop relationships of trust and mutual support across communities. Whether you are a student looking to develop or deepen connections with communities in Syracuse and Central New York, a faculty member with a new or ongoing publicly engaged course or project, or a community leader seeking collaborators, we would love to connect.
