About Us

ECC Humanities Center

The Elgin Community College Humanities Center encourages and fosters an understanding of the central importance of the humanities in all areas of academic and creative inquiry within a framework of diversity, global and international perspectives. We sponsor three ongoing forums of inquiry at the college:
  • Speakers Series
  • Socrates Cafe
  • International Film Series
We also co-sponsor special events across campus and serve as a resource for the Humanities. Our activities are open to students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the District 509 community. Our email adress is humanitiescenter@elgin.edu.
