The humanities are a window into the deepest aspects of the human condition, those things that persist across time and cultures. They familiarize us with the language of emotion and motivation, and the areas of human life that defy quantification. And, despite the claim that studying the humanities is impractical, they develop habits of shrewd observation, thoughtful understanding, and clear expression that are invaluable in every walk of personal and professional life. 

In this age of reality TV, inch-deep internet analysis, and glib sound bites, we applaud Humanities Washington for supporting these timeless lessons.

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.
