Mission Statement

Our Mission

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences serves the University by engaging students in distinctive, diverse programs in social and behavioral sciences and the humanities.  Emerging from a vibrant liberal arts core, our collaborative learning environment inspires individual, social, cultural, creative, and scientific exploration.  Students devise and apply innovative solutions, embrace divergent worldviews, consider the ethical implications of their actions, and communicate effectively in their professional, public, and personal lives.  Together, students, faculty and staff generate knowledge, pursue research and foster life-long learning to contribute to the well-being of communities from local to global.
