About the Tanner Humanities Center
The Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah is proud to be celebrating
35 years of promoting humanities inquiry and exchange. The Center supports innovative
scholarly projects and creates opportunities for interaction among scholars, students,
and lifelong learners. It offers programs in three major areas: public outreach, educational
enrichment, and academic research. The activities reflect a vision of the humanities
as not only relevant, stimulating, and cutting-edge, but also essential for developing
critical thinking, tolerance, and respect on campus and in the community.
