HIP provides economically and educationally disadvantaged individuals the opportunity to study the humanities with the guidance of Reed College and Willamette University professors. Oregon Humanities magazine is a thought-provoking publication devoted to exploring important and timely topics from a variety of perspectives and stimulating reflection and public conversation. Public Program Grants provide financial support for nonprofit organizations across Oregon to conceive and implement public humanities programs. Responsive Program Grants support organizations that respond quickly and thoughtfully to current issues and events shaping our world. Oregon Humanities also convenes reading and discussion groups, and hosts panel presentations on topics of public relevance and concern.
