Humanities Out There (HOT, UC Irvine) An Educational partnership between UCI's School of Humanities and the Santa Ana Unified School District  

Welcome to HOT!

Since 1997 Humanities Out There (HOT) has helped students gain the tools they need to reach their American dreams. HOT draws together public school teachers, graduate students, and undergraduate tutors in a shared enterprise of bringing innovative scholarship in the form of age appropriate curricula that enhance the critical thinking and writing skills of Orange County high school students. As teachers and mentors, UCI students bring a university education to public school classrooms.

HOT is a collaborative enterprise between UCI’s School of Humanities and Orange County schools with support from UCI’s Center for Educational Partnerships in collaboration with UCI’s California History-Social Science Project.
