Humanities Institute

About the Humanities Institute

Since it began as a campus-wide initiative in September of 1990, the Humanities Institute has supported the work of faculty and staff to bring diverse programming/events (including organizing and sponsoring conferences, guest speaker series, and community partnerships) to Mesa College. In the past, this was made possible by having a full-time faculty member and staff support to coordinate this level of work with the campus.

The current Humanities Institute works to:

  • Promote the Humanities across disciplines through curriculum development, programs/events, and publications. 
  • Provide a funding base for faculty and staff to use for coordinating/organizing programs/events that promote our mission of working to serve as an internal vehicle for cultural, Interdisciplinary and San Diego Mesa College community priorities.
  • Provide support to complete paperwork related to funded programming/events.
  • Provide a network of campus and community partners for publicizing programming/events through email and print.

For information on funding events contact the Humanities Institute Coordinator, Dr. Denise Rogers, derogers@sdccd.edu; 619-388-2371.
