Join us in Washington, D.C. to advocate for the humanities!
This year’s event will provide ample opportunity to connect with a growing number of humanities advocates from around the country. During our Annual Meeting, we will explore approaches to year-round advocacy on college campuses and in local communities while also preparing for Capitol Hill visits. On Humanities Advocacy Day, we will visit House and Senate offices to make a persuasive case for federal funding for the humanities.
Monday, March 14th, 9 am-5 pm
The Annual Meeting brings together faculty, administrators, and representatives from scholarly societies, museums, archives and other humanities organizations to build their capacity to advocate for the humanities. Programming will include sessions on:
- Recruiting undergraduates to the humanities
- Defending humanities departments facing consolidation or elimination
- Promoting publicly engaged humanities work on campus
- Documenting the impact of campus and community-based programs
- Advocating for federal funding on Capitol Hill
We hope our Sunday night kick-off reception on March 13th will be an opportunity to connect with colleagues old and new.
Tuesday, March 15th, 9 am-5 pm.
On Humanities Advocacy Day, state-based delegations will meet with Members of Congress and their staff.
Together, we will advocate for increased FY 2023 funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the Department of Education’s international education programs (Title VI and Fulbright-Hays).
During the NHA Annual Metting, we will offer training on Capitol Hill advocacy. New and seasoned advocates are welcome!
