The Art of Being Human
We explore the ideas and art that define cultures, and we search for the essence of the human condition across borders and throughout history.
From philosophers like Aristotle and Plato to writers such as Shakespeare and Steinbeck, and geniuses like Beethoven, Leonardo, and Michelangelo, we engage our teaching and research with the human events that shape the world. And our students learn lessons about themselves and about what it means to be human that accompany and enrich their lives beyond NAU.
We are the hub for cultural engagement in Flagstaff. We bring the artists, thinkers, entertainers, and performers to the stage for events that inspire and enlighten. Find an upcoming event that interests you and join us in exploring these human connections.
