Summer Intensive Orientation

We all need to find who we are and how we fit into the world. -Yo-Yo Ma, Cellist

The journey begins in the pristine Centennial Valley, Montana, where scholars are immersed in an intensive 4-day orientation to the Humanities at the Taft-Nicholson Environmental Humanities Center.

In this setting, scholars commence the year-long process of exploration and inquiry, beginning with self-reflection and broadening to their natural surroundings and beyond. Framed by a broad theme, Humanities Scholars invites scholars to delve into the personal, environmental and societal issues impacting our world today, identifying topics to be considered throughout their year together.
