In 1974, Maryland Humanities formed as the Maryland Committee for the Humanities and Public Policy in response to the federal law creating the National Endowment for the Humanities (P.L. 89-209). The Committee reformed in 1983 as the Maryland Humanities Council, and again in 2016 as Maryland Humanities.
The humanities include archaeology; comparative religion; ethics; history; jurisprudence; literature; philosophy; and the history, criticism, and theory of the arts and related social sciences.
Maryland Humanities creates and supports educational experiences in the humanities that offer Marylanders the chance to embrace lifelong learning, exchange ideas openly, and enrich their communities. Through its programs and grants, the organization encourages public dialogue that interprets human experience, promotes cross-cultural understanding, explores human values, and connects people to the wider world.
A private, nonprofit Maryland corporation, Maryland Humanities is funded by the federal government, the State Department of Education, the Maryland Historical Trust, and by foundations, corporations, and individuals.
The Governor appoints up to six of the twenty-four volunteer members of the Board of Directors.
