Mission Statement


The Center for the Humanities in practice (CHiP) is the outreach center, consulting practice and think tank of the Humanities Institute at Ohio State.  We seek to work closely on projects with for-profit companies, non-profits, NGOs and governmental agencies that leverage the expertise and unique ways of seeing provided by the humanities. CHiP is a practice of the “translational humanities:” applying humanistic knowledge to solve challenging problems. 

CHiP works to provide new opportunities and to catalyze the resources of Ohio State University for graduate students in the Arts and the Humanities so that they can put the full range of their skills and interests to work in the world and pursue a diverse range of careers within and beyond the academy.
