Global Humanities & Religions Leadership Team


The mission of the leadership team is to foster communication among the students, alumni, and faculty of the Global Humanities and Religions Department, and to increase the visibility of the department’s major and minor programs.

What We are Doing

Global Humanities and Religions Nights

We are hosting events each quarter for the GHR community to connect and to create opportunities for interested students to come and get introduced to what the department has to offer.

Alumni Connection

We’re exploring ways to connect alumni of the Global Humanities and Religions (formerly Liberal Studies) Department with current majors and minors, to give an opportunity to discuss common interests and goals, experiences and opportunities. We’d like to give current students a look into what the major can offer them and where their interests can take them. There’s an alumni news form coming soon to the department web site — let us know if you’d like to get involved with current students!
