College of Liberal Arts

We confront complex challenges responsibly. The College of Liberal Arts equips change-makers to confront complex challenges in today’s global society.

As the home of scholarly disciplines foundational for cultural awareness, the College of Liberal Arts fosters leadership with regard to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We value our diversity of intersecting identities and experiences as central to the development of thoughtful and critical thinkers, scholars, and change agents.

Learning key historical, social, ethical, aesthetic, technological, and philosophical frameworks prepares our graduates to tackle multi-faceted issues affecting those in local communities to groups on the global stage. Our multidisciplinary approach creates innovation through cultural expression, creative thinking, and collaboration, empowering our students and faculty to change the world. Will you join us? The College of Liberal Arts Dean's Excellence Fund supports vital programs and prepares us for whatever new challenges lie ahead. Your support will fund valuable student-faculty research collaborations, immersive hands-on learning experiences, high-impact peer mentoring, and creative scholarly work.

While there are many areas within the college that benefit from your support, the Dean's Excellence Fund is the College of Liberal Arts’ current priority. By partnering with us, you are directly supporting the next generation of leaders and making important opportunities accessible to all students.
