Since our school’s inception, the Humanities Department at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics has played a critical role in fulfilling our school’s mission to cultivate informed, empathetic, and engaged citizens and leaders who will work for the betterment of the world. NCSSM Humanities regularly sponsors events—including film screenings, art exhibitions, and guest speakers—that invite students, faculty, staff, and members of our communities to engage with diverse voices and explore the ways that the humanities are essential to our mission and to the future of our world.

Building Coalitions for Positive Change was a virtual event focused on how communities can create a more just future. Featuring a keynote address by Madame Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (2011 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and former President of Liberia), a question-and-answer period, and a panel discussion with community leaders, the event will explore how, together, we might bring about systemic change to build a better world.
