Documenting the Value of the Humanities in Communities

We have developed a survey to document the impact of COVID-related programming for humanities organizations and educators. We will be working with project directors to implement the survey and encourage others to use it as well.

In April, we administered a COVID-19 Humanities Community Survey to document the impact that COVID-19 was having on humanities institutions throughout the U.S. This data allowed us to showcase the incredible work humanities institutions are undertaking as well as support our advocacy on Capitol Hill.

We are now several months into the pandemic and the landscape has changed considerably from those early weeks. A greater understanding of this landscape will help us determine how we can best support the humanities community. We have created a new survey, which provides the opportunity to share about: your ability to access support from federal, state, and local governments; the challenges you see for your institution in the near future; and your work right now and specifically the ways you are serving your students and communities in the face of the crisis.

Take The Survey

As we document COVID-19 humanities programming based at higher ed institutions, we are sharing them so that the broader community can learn from these examples.
