The Humanities Institute

Housed in The University of Toledo's College of Arts and Letters, The Roger Ray Institute for the Humanities celebrates the valuable contributions of human culture through literature, languages, arts, history, philosophy, folklore, and religion. Named in 2017 to recognize professor emeritus of history Roger Ray's vital role in its founding in 1986, the Institute advocates for the study of these disciplines and encourages humanities scholars at the University by supporting their efforts and helping to increase visibility of their work. The Institute also hosts events to cultivate thoughtful conversations about the liberal arts.
