Nevada Humanities is a nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of trustees and is one of 56 state and territorial humanities councils affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities. The mission of Nevada Humanities is to use the tools and traditions of the humanities to build a more engaged citizenry.
Board members are expected to make meeting attendance a priority, be enthusiastic spokespeople for the humanities, attend and evaluate programs and events sponsored by Nevada Humanities, make an annual gift consistent with their ability and help build the resources of Nevada Humanities by engaging in fundraising efforts.
Nevada Humanities is a statewide organization, and board members are selected for geographic and occupational diversity, their skills and talents and their interest in, and commitment to, public humanities and civic participation.
