The Humanities Council hosts its own core programs, while serving as a forum for 16 humanities departments and more than 30 interdepartmental centers, programs and committees.

Membership in the Humanities Council is open to chairs and directors of all humanities departments, programs and committees. The dean of the School of Architecture, the dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Chair of the Lewis Center for the Arts, and one representative each from the natural and social sciences sit with the Council. This group meets periodically to discuss matters affecting the humanities at Princeton and to advise the chair, the deans, and the president on policy issues.
