Summer 2020 Online Program
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stanford has determined that on-campus residential programs should be shifted to an online-only format. In place of our residential program this summer, we are pleased to offer an online alternative to the Stanford Summer Humanities Institute. Please note that some information on this page is specific to our residential program.
For more information about this summer’s program, please visit the Online Program page.

The Humanities Thrive at Stanford
Hear Stanford faculty members talk about the impact of the humanities for high school students. Professors discuss the types of questions participants grapple with during the summer seminars, exploring important issues people and societies face in the world.
The goal of the Stanford Summer Humanities Institute is to bring high school students who are particularly interested in the humanities to Stanford for three weeks so that they can experience what a humanities class and what humanities research is like at a top university.
