The Clemente Course for the Humanities is a full year rigorous academic program for people living in economic distress, with required courses in Moral Philosophy, Literature, U.S. History, Art History, and Critical Thinking and Writing, taught by faculty from leading universities. Conceived of by N.Y.U.’s Earl Shorris in 1995 as a modality for alleviating poverty and redressing injustice, more than ten thousand students worldwide have attended a Clemente course, and over fifty percent have successfully completed it.
