It isn't enough to say we "need" the humanities because we ARE the humanities. They are gifts to us from our predecessors, ancestors, and contemporaries. They represent the imagination, [the] innovative, and ask us to think deeply—as the greatest philosophers and artists have always asked us for the last 2,500 years—about our experience, and to think beyond the various intellectually lazy forms of ideology circulating in America today.

Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington's Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington is governed by a board of trustees who represent the many key constituencies crucial to our work: museums, heritage organizations, universities, scholarly organizations, professional groups, schools, foundations, and corporations. 

One in six trustees are appointed by the Governor, and the remainder elected from nominations submitted by partners and the general public. Members are drawn from across Washington and represent the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the state. Trustees are elected for renewable three-year terms, serve on at least two committees, and generally have a history of engagement with Humanities Washington. 

Nominations may be submitted to Executive Director Julie Ziegler.
