Our Visionstudents outside

Excellence in discovery, learning, and engagement can be achieved only in a diverse community of scholars committed to the free, open, and respectful exchange of ideas in all of its activities. We will continue our efforts to enlarge and sustain this community of scholars.

The College of Liberal Arts will work to:

  • Increase the diversity of the University community to reflect our multicultural society;

  • Improve the academic climate so that it is increasingly civil, respectful, accessible, and free from harassment;

  • Create and sustain an environment that supports intellectual inquiry, cultural enhancement, and awareness of broader issues.
