Admissions & Aid
The Wolfe Institute for the Humanities supports excellence in research, publication, teaching, and all forms of academic discourse on the campus of Brooklyn College. The institute sponsors a varied series of lectures, seminars, colloquia, conferences, and study groups, often in collaboration with other academic programs and organizations to keep public conversation at Brooklyn College in touch with advances in the humanities and social sciences. The Wolfe Institute sponsors a faculty fellowship each year for research in the humanities. The institute also works closely with the students and faculty of the Brooklyn College Honors Academy.
