The Taft-Nicholson Center works to bridge the humanities and sciences. Quote.






Lakeview, Montana – A ghost town reborn as an educational center. Watch as a small abandoned town in Southwestern Montana’s Centennial Valley comes alive as a unique education destination focused on engaging the arts and humanities to deepen and enliven the study and understanding of the environment, conservation, and sustainability. The University of Utah’s Taft-Nicholson Center offers unparalleled opportunities to explore, study and create in a singular wilderness area with diverse ecosystems.
