Mission Statement:

The Humanities Institute in the College of Languages, Literature and Social Sciences at the University of Toledo advocates for and supports the study of human culture — its literature, languages, arts, history, philosophy, folklore, and religion — at all levels of learning and scholarship, through both disciplinary and interdisciplinary means. It seeks both to sustain the work of humanities scholars at the university and also to foster the dissemination of that knowledge and expertise to a larger community of learners both inside and outside the university.
