The VHC would not be possible without the support of our project partners. We wish to thank them for all their support as we continue to develop the Virtual Humanities Center at Great Basin College.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is an independent federal agency created in 1965. Because democracy demands wisdom, the NEH serves and strengthens our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. The Endowment accomplishes this mission by awarding grants to a range of cultural institutions across the United States.
