"I have chosen to serve on the NDHC to help promote the humanities, because they are what make us human."
We shape our work and our work shapes us. This is why the study of the past, both in local and world history, gives our lives meaning, and helps us chart where we want to go. In this vein it is a privilege to be a part of the North Dakota Humanities Council, and listen to and collaborate with North Dakotans and non-North Dakotans on humanities projects and programs throughout the state.”
"The humanities matter because they help us understand the long and ongoing history of human attempts to document our rich and diverse experience of the world. I’m on the NDHC so I can join with other North Dakotans in sharing why this history matters so deeply to our shared future."
I believe the work of the North Dakota Humanities Council (NDHC) is essential, especially as people of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds learn to engage with one another within North Dakota’s rapidly changing population.
