Resolution from the Board of Trustees

The National Humanities Center is fortunate to have a superb staff of dedicated and collaborative professionals at every level and across the board in Scholarly Programs, Education, and Public Engagement, and in the maintenance and delivery of all manner of essential services, from the library to the digital, financial, and administrative infrastructure, to the kitchen, building, and grounds. In adapting to the current world situation, that staff has more than ever demonstrated not only commitment, agility, and thoughtfulness, but also other qualities that underlie humanistic values: generosity and kindness. The Board of Trustees of the National Humanities Center expresses its deepest appreciation to the wonderful staff that is making it possible in these terrible times for us to continue encouraging and supporting all the forms of humanistic endeavor that help give meaning to life.
