College of Liberal Arts

Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts values quality teaching and learning; innovative research, scholarship, and creative expression; and committed service to local and global communities. We expect our students to think, read, write, and speak effectively; to acquire foundational knowledge in the humanities and social sciences; and to develop expertise in their chosen fields of study. We celebrate diversity in people and ideas. We foster civility, ethical behavior, and personal responsibility. And we embrace our role as citizens in an increasingly interdependent world.
