Our Mission & Vision
Established in 1972 as an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Wisconsin Humanities is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization governed by a volunteer board of directors who come from across the state.
To strengthen the roots of community life through educational and cultural programs that inspire civic participation and individual imagination.
A future where every person has access to cultural, educational, and civic opportunities, and where communities engage to address critical issues.
The image of Wisconsin is comprised of three distinct faces. It is designed to represent the essence of our work – to bring together individuals and communities, each with their own story to tell.
Being human is a shared experience, and we are here to explore it together.
