About the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University:

The Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) supports and partners with university professors working within the classical liberal intellectual tradition. Our vision is that higher education becomes a place where the open exchange of ideas flourishes, and where ideas within the classical liberal tradition are regularly taught, discussed, challenged, and developed so that they inform scholarly and public discourse on the key challenges facing a free society.


Each year, IHS provides thousands of aspiring and established professors graduate student fellowships, career development support, research funding, and support for on-campus student programs. Most importantly, through its scholarly convenings IHS connects these scholars to one another to form a diverse and growing community of thought leaders advancing ideas essential to the good society-a pluralistic and tolerant society in which individuals and communities flourish in a context of openness, dignity, equality, and freedom.



We have a flexible, professional, open office environment that encourages innovation and entrepreneurship and provides substantial opportunity for professional growth.
