As a proud alumnus and current dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our amazing community! We are an extraordinary group of accomplished and award-winning faculty, students and staff who share a love for life-long learning, a desire to create inclusive learning environments, and a passion to responsibly contribute to our local and global communities.

The College of Arts and Sciences provides an education ground in experiential and inquiry-based learning with a commitment to preparing students to live fulfilling lives, to become leaders in their chosen fields, and to cultivate a just and sustainable world. We value student-centered discovery and creativity, global learning, well-being and sustainable practices, along with a commitment to providing structured, guided pathways to achievement and success in college and beyond.

If you are new to campus or just want to reconnect, I extend an open invitation for a coffee/tea break in Berglund 207! Feel free to stop by and say hello!
