At the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, our disciplines are as diverse as our students. Our many departments, applied research centers and interdisciplinary programs unite behind the shared goal of educating critical and imaginative thinkers through inquiry and engagement. We encourage students to dream big, to challenge themselves, to take risks, to be successful. We cultivate leadership, self-confidence, persistence and responsiveness in a world increasingly characterized by diversity and change. We engage the community broadly, through intellectual offerings that draw from the talents of our faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends.
