The Maryland Humanities Council (MHC) is a statewide, educational, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that uses the humanities to stimulate and promote informed dialogue and civic engagement on issues critical to Marylanders.

Opening Eyes. Opening Ears. Opening Minds. The humanities explore the human experience. Through the humanities we think about who we are – our ideas, our histories, our literature, our values – and how we relate to one another. We encourage Marylanders with different backgrounds and viewpoints to see, hear and learn more about others and themselves. We believe that only informed, engaged citizens can build healthy, democratic societies.
