About Us


The Gould Center for Humanistic Studies enhances CMC's mission to educate leading minds by providing opportunities for research, study, and experience in art, classics, history, literature, music, philosophy, religious studies, and other fields of humanistic inquiry as a means to understand and develop the power and use of the imagination.

The Center hosts Open Study Hours at our office in Kravis Lower Court from 7 – 11 pm from Sunday to Thursday, dedicated to fostering an inclusive study and communal space for CMC students interested in the humanities.
