An exciting new initiative is underway at the Mannie Jackson Center for the Humanities (MJCH®) that will begin with the renovation of the former Kraft building, located at 1310 N. Main Street in downtown Edwardsville, and continue with programming to target young leaders in underserved areas of Madison County.

The initiative – “STEM Meets Humanities” – will address problems we all face in society that the study of the humanities continuously works to understand.
