Dean's welcome

We Make the World a Better Place

Whether you want to make a difference in your community, explore other cultures, or discover solutions to global and  community issues, we have the place for you and the faculty to help guide you. Our faculty members are outstanding contributors to their fields and serve as mentors to our students

In addition to classroom instruction, you’ll have opportunities to select from learning in research laboratories, schools, community organizations, government offices, libraries, historical sites, and through hands-on field assignments, internships, service-learning projects, or study abroad programs.

Our graduates gain skills they can apply to a diverse set of careers and graduate degrees. Our alums are influencers in their fields and include teachers, lawyers, politicians, social workers, counselors, writers, curators, researchers and consultants.

Our students learn to think critically, communicate clearly and solve complex problems—skills that will prepare you for careers, leadership and engaged citizenship. I’m excited to have you join their ranks.

Dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences
