Humanities Learning Center
The Humanities Learning Center (HLC) is a group of dedicated faculty working alongside administrative, support staff, and community partners whose mission is to bring the relevance and vitality of the humanities to the Great Lakes Bay Region. This group is coordinated by Dr. Amy French, Assistant Professor of History. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (989) 686-9132.
The humanities may be best described as the study of the human experience. Through exploration of history, philosophy, literature, film/theater, religion, art, music, languages, politics, and law, we are offered a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. Knowledge of the human experience inspires us by allowing us to connect to the greatest minds and talents of the ages. So go ahead—know thyself—and open up a world of inspiration and wonder.
