Humanities Learning Center Annual Awards

Science can tell you how to clone a tyrannosaurus rex. Humanities can tell you why this might be a bad idea.” College of Humanities, University of Utah

At Delta College, we would like to recognize those in the mid-Michigan region who preserve and foster the humanities. Delta’s Humanities Learning Center is pleased to announce a call for nominations for our 2020 Humanities Learning Center Awards. Please nominate a candidate (including yourself) for the following awards:

  • Outstanding Humanities Organization
  • Humanities Educator of the Year
  • Humanities Scholar
  • Emerging Humanities Scholar (Delta Students)

The study of the human experience may best describe the humanities. Through exploration of history, philosophy, literature, film/theater, religious studies, music, languages, and politics, we are offered a deeper understanding of ourselves and others. Knowledge of the human experience inspires us by allowing us to connect to the greatest minds and talents of the ages. Please join us in honoring those individuals who help make these connections, by nominating them for one of the Humanities Awards.

For award criteria, see: HLC Awards Criteria

For nomination form, visit: HLC Awards Nomination Form

Nominations are due by November 30, 2019.

The Humanities Learning Center will honor award winners at a ceremony held at Andersen Enrichment Center in March of 2020.
