The PCC HARTS Initiative was founded in 2016 on the premise that the humanities and arts should be an essential component of education in the 21st century.
Because the humanities and arts lie at the heart of every human culture, they are essential for understanding cultures and navigating differences. A central goal of the HARTS Initiative is to promote study in the humanities and arts as a pathway towards better communication and critical thinking skills, preparation for a broad variety of careers and most importantly a civically engaged life.
