The Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (JAHHM) serves as a dynamic memorial to social reformer Jane Addams, the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, and her colleagues whose work changed the lives of their immigrant neighbors as well as national and international public policy. The museum preserves and develops the original Hull-House site for the interpretation and continuation of the historic settlement house vision, linking research, education, and social engagement.

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum awarded two National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grants!
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum is one of 21 organizations in the country awarded a NEH Humanities in the Public Square grant for Making the West Side: Community Conversations on Neighborhood Change. The grant supports the museum's multi-year initiative to investigate its historic role in neighborhood change and situate both the historical and contemporary West Side of Chicago in a national dialogue on race, gentrification, and the American city.
The second grant, Securing the Common Good: Hull-House History at UIC, is a multi-year initiative that draws upon Jane Addams Hull-House Museum's demonstrated leadership in providing quality educational experiences to faculty and students. Aimed toward non-humanities faculty, the grant will create new teaching modules that will integrate the history of the Hull-House Settlement across the UIC campus. If you are UIC faculty and are interested in participating in the faculty seminar, more information can be found here.
