Humanities Institute


In pursuit of its civic and intellectual community-building mission, the Humanities Institute seeks out creative partnerships and collaborations with other institutions and constituencies throughout Central Texas. These collaborations include shared planning and development of new public humanities programs and Institute financial or promotional support for compelling initiatives launched by other organizations.

Organizational partners for past and current Humanities Institute programs have included the Austin History Center Association, the Austin Lyric Opera, the Office of the Mayor of Austin, the Austin Public Library, Austin Area Interreligious Ministries, Foundation Communities, Greenlights for Nonprofit Success, KLRU TV, the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum, News 8 Austin, the Religion and Labor Network of Austin, Seton Cove Spirituality Center, and more than twenty Central Texas schools and school districts.

"The Free Minds Project is a wonderful opportunity for our residents and neighbors—a chance to grow that they would never otherwise get." —Walter Moreau, Executive Director, Foundation Communities
