The Humanities Ladder is a unique program that introduces college-level humanities to low-income and under-represented high school students through weekly sessions with Slippery Rock University professors. It is the Stone House Center for Public Humanities' flagship initiative.
This transformative experience empowers students to succeed by providing groundwork for
understanding the complexities of the world, while fostering empathy for others and a desire to become active and effective citizens. Through the Humanities Ladder, students envision new educational goals and develop greater confidence in civic participation.
We are pleased to reveal a NEW website exclusively for our Humanities Ladder program. We invite you to learn more about the program, our successes, the curriculum, and the people involved by visiting humanitiesladder.org.
Our vision is to create a community of learners enriched, engaged and enlightened through the humanities.
