The original Committee report envisioned the FCHI as an interdisciplinary institute providing "a focal point for humanities endeavors within the University," which would work to advance "research and teaching in the humanities broadly construed." The FCHI serves both those trained in the humanities as traditionally defined and also others in the University who are interested in humanistic issues; outreach to faculty and students in the Social Sciences, the Sciences, and the Professional Schools at Emory is an important part of the FCHI's work. The FCHI is dedicated to providing occasions and spaces for encouraging intellectual community and scholarship across disciplines.
