About Us

Faculty members in the School of Liberal Arts prepare students to become reflective, critical, and engaged citizens of the world. Our faculty are committed as well to their own development as teachers and scholars. They recognize that teaching excellence embraces innovative and technologically advanced forms of instruction in a variety of settings. Our faculty members foster an understanding of diverse cultures and international perspectives as well as an appreciation for the richness and changing composition of American culture. They also investigate new ways to heighten student awareness of the moral and intellectual dimensions of human existence.
