to use digital media and computer technology to democratize history (incorporate multiple voices, reach diverse audiences, and encourage popular participation in presenting and preserving the past.)
CHNM receives over 16 million visitors, and over a million people rely on its digital tools to teach, learn, and conduct research.
CHNM’s work has been recognized with major awards and grants from: the American Historical Association, the National Humanities Center, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Department of Education, the Library of Congress, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Mellon, Sloan, Hewlett, Rockefeller, Gould, Delmas, and Kellogg foundations.
