The Center for the Humanities at SOU consolidates the efforts of the departments of art, communication, language, literature, and philosophy, history, music, and theatre to promote the arts and humanities on the SOU campus and in the community.

The Center for the Humanities is the main organizing group for the SOU Campus Theme Activities.

Each year, the Center for the Humanities selects, with the support of other campus groups,  a thematic focus for the year and coordinates lectures, courses and other events around that theme.
