Center for the Arts and Humanities

The Center for the Arts & Humanities at Santa Clara University fosters interdisciplinary collaboration in research, creative activity, and outreach. We build and support partnerships, projects, and programming on campus and with our local community. The CAH brings together faculty, students, staff, visiting artists and scholars, and community members to pursue meaningful expression and intellectual inquiry--the building blocks for a better future and a more just world.

Alert icon The Center for the Arts and Humanities at Santa Clara University stands in solidarity with those rising up to call for an end to the long, ongoing, and destructive reality of racial injustice and white supremacy in the United States. We stand with them against hate, against racism, against inequality, against police brutality and impunity. And we stand in solidarity with Black faculty, students, and staff–always, but especially at this moment when racialized and heightened state violence adds to the burdens of grief, trauma, and vulnerability.
