Mission

The Liberal Arts liberate and empower individuals with practical, transferable skills; intercultural and interdisciplinary perspectives; and a commitment to social justice and lifelong learning.

Goals:

  • Cultivate the skills that are the foundation of all professions: the ability to think critically and independently, to interpret and evaluate insightfully, and to write and speak clearly and persuasively.
  • Discover and develop perspectives that cross traditional academic disciplines, liberating minds to see and transform the world creatively.
  • Foster dedication to social justice and a lifelong enthusiasm for service to the community and the world.
