Humanities, Arts, and Education

Throughout its history, the Academy has advocated for the humanities, arts, and education in American society.

Today, the Academy conducts research and develops policy recommendations to strengthen our education system, to advance the humanities in academic scholarship and in the workforce, and to support the arts. This work also examines public perceptions of these fields of study and their broader impact on the nation.

The Academy brings together scholars, artists, and leaders from both the public and private sectors to consider ways to strengthen the humanities, arts, and education.

By working with colleges and universities, learned societies, libraries, state humanities councils, museums, industry, and government, the Academy seeks to advance the humanities, arts, and education as prerequisites for a functioning democracy.
