The Humanities Center
The Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities’ mission is to:
- Conduct activities that promote mutual understanding and respect among people of different cultures, races, ethnicities, religions and other distinctions
- Influence positive social change by transforming attitudes and perceptions towards greater acceptance, tolerance and interaction among these groups
- Ultimately remove barriers that hinder individuals and groups from realizing their aspirations and full potential
The center, a distinct unit of Lewis and Clark Community College, is recognized as a leader for helping individuals and communities across the globe embrace the notion of respect, understanding, kindness, and forgiveness.
Since its opening in 2015, the center has provided a gathering place for scholars and other individuals from across the disciplines to meet, discuss and plan educational activities/program around the various aspects of the humanities, including:
- Visits of distinguished scholars
- Public lectures and conferences in the humanities and abroad
- A year-long Fellows Seminar
- Contributions to planning and development across the humanities locally, nationally and internationally
- Cooperation with national and international humanities institutions
