The College of Arts & Sciences celebrates the joy of discovery and the exercise of critical thought in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
Advancing the values of a liberal arts education, we affirm that a full life is an intellectual, moral, and creative endeavor of meaning and purpose. Our goal is to develop our students by fostering resolve and adaptability, self-reliance and collaborative effort, humility and courage, a sense of tradition and a spirit of innovation.
We strive to create and maintain a diverse, supportive, and respectful collegiate community by encouraging lasting connections among students, faculty, and staff. Together, committed to both leadership and service, we work each day to further our pursuit of strength through truth--per veritatem vis.
