Faculty and Administration


The School of Humanities and Sciences' mission is to provide sophisticated teaching and learning opportunities through an unusually diverse range of programs taught by outstanding faculty. We accomplish our mission in a student-centered learning environment that integrates the enduring benefits of liberal education with professional and applied studies. We recognize that flexible and advanced critical thinking is the appropriate preparation for a wide range of pursuits. To that end, we support research, scholarship, and creative activity as complements to the excellent teaching and advising that are central to all we do, and we strive for collaboration between students and faculty in those endeavors.

Beyond intellectual development, we offer opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds to engage in a broad array of cocurricular activities. An education in the School of Humanities and Sciences encourages informed citizenship, global awareness, and community involvement, preparing students to make meaningful contributions to society and for productive, fulfilled lives.
