Humanities Without Walls aims to create new avenues for collaborative research, teaching, and the production of scholarship in the humanities, forging and sustaining areas of inquiry that cannot be created or maintained without cross-institutional cooperation.
Humanities Without Walls Statement on Academic Freedom
The Humanities Without Walls consortium stands committed to the principles of academic freedom, free speech, and shared governance that are central to the maintenance of excellence at all universities. In our collaborations, we uphold these standards, encouraging dialogue across disciplinary divides and among scholars, students, and community members, no matter how challenging or difficult the topics may be. As a consortium that grants funds provided by a private foundation, we act together to promote these goals and to advance the standards outlined by the American Association of University Professors.
