Creating Leaders. Leading creators.

The UNC Institute for the Arts and Humanities is a faculty center unlike any other in the nation, perhaps even in the world — a place that shapes the future of research and education across disciplines. It’s where the study of medicine fuses with the humanities, where linguistics and neuroscience converge, where history contextualizes public policy, and where performance art examines issues of social justice. It’s where faculty forge connections that change the world.

The institute offers competitive fellowships, grants, leadership development and support for visiting scholars and artists, as well as career programs for faculty across all ranks. Their work pushes faculty to reach their fullest potential. The result: students learn from the top scholars in their fields, and the Carolina campus has leaders to keep it among the world’s great universities.

By connecting the faculty’s passions with new and greater purpose, Carolina creates better possibilities for all: for our students, for North Carolina, for humanity.
