culture in the Upper Midwest is essential to building our success.

Collaborations and partnerships are key to the work of the Center.
The Center seeks individual and corporate support to build its programs
and networking efforts through an endowment that will sustain regional
humanistic activities for years to come.
The National Endowment for the Humanities has

throughout the Upper Midwest .
