THE UC DAVIS HUMANITIES INSTITUTE is proud of the distinctive kind of humanities we foster at one of the nation’s leading land-grant universities. Our brand of “land- grant humanities” addresses critical problems in our culture and does so by bringing together scholars from different disciplines in creative and exciting ways. Asking the big questions of meaning, humanists at UC Davis reach across the campus and beyond to make the humanities essential to debates about the public good.

With our counterparts throughout the University of California system, we aim to bring faculty into conversation with one another, with the campus community and with the public at large. From its early 20th century roots as the University Farm to its recognition today as among the nation’s top 10 public research universities, UC Davis has remained committed to research that benefits the public good. Many may think STEM when they hear the name UC Davis. But as a great university UC Davis needs the humanities no less. All great research universities have great humanities departments. It’s impossible to have one without the other, and it’s our mission — at the UC Davis Humanities Institute — to fulfill that potential.
