Educational Mission

At both the graduate and undergraduate levels, the College is committed to educating students to be responsible citizens of a democratic society; to promote critical reflection and the advancement of knowledge; to foster awareness of cultural and ethnic differences and commonalities found among the communities of the world. Students are challenged to address the analytical, historical, cultural and philosophical foundations of their disciplines, to think critically and creatively, to act with ethical and aesthetic awareness and to communicate effectively in a free and open exchange of ideas. Faculty strive for excellence in teaching, scholarly activity and service to their profession, the institution and the greater community. The College provides an environment in which academic freedom and responsibility exist in a community of learning and shared governance. All of these functions are key to how the College of Arts and Sciences helps to fulfill the University's statewide liberal arts mission.
