Professor of Law and Dean Emeritus Joseph D. Harbaugh is elected as board member of the Florida Humanities Council (FHC), a private nonprofit organization, whose mission is to develop public programs to examine Florida’s history though exploration of its heritage, literary and artistic traditions, ethics, and cultural values. FHC is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, led by twenty-five board members of the academic, public, nonprofit and corporate sectors; six of these board members are appointed by the state Governor and the others are elected by the board. All board members serve a renewable three-year term.
Harbaugh is honored and excited to serve on the FHC board, which gives back to the Florida community by providing grants to nonprofits to support public humanities and cultural programs. Examples of programs and efforts organized by FHC are workshops for K-12 teachers, heritage tours, and partnerships with libraries to provide family literacy programs and cultural exhibits. The FHC also operates a humanities speakers bureau and publishes FORUM, an award-winning magazine that provides cultural insight and historic perspective of Florida and its people.
