The Nebraska Humanities Council (NHC) enhances the quality of life in communities across our state through programs that study the human race, its achievements, its creations, its dreams and aspirations, its failures and triumphs. The NHC promotes a better understanding of Nebraska–who we are and where we have been–to build a better future. The committee awarded its first grants in 1973. In addition to special events scheduled throughout the year, the NHC continues to provide high-quality humanities programs, such as: The Great Plains Chautauqua, The Nebraska Book Festival, Capitol Forum on America’s Future, The Humanities Resource Center, Public Radio and Television Programs, Program Grants, The Governor’s Lecture on the Humanities, and Nebraska Humanities Magazine.
