The mission of Humanities New York is to strengthen civil society and the bonds of community, using the humanities to foster engaged inquiry and dialogue around social and cultural concerns. To realize its mission, Humanities New York has identified three broad goals with attendant objectives to guide its work over the next three years.
To expand the outreach and programming impact of HNY so that all New Yorkers may access the tools and experiences of the humanities.
Reach vulnerable communities and other new audiences and to create programming to serve those communities.
Expand outreach efforts that build the capacity of communities and organizations.
