Our Mission

The College of Liberal and Fine Arts has a threefold mission.

First, we provide the majority of courses for the core curriculum through our offerings in communications, the fine arts, the humanities and the social sciences.

Second, we offer educational and professional training to our majors which enables them to take their place as productive members of their chosen professions.

Third, the college aligns itself with the university's mission by promoting excellence in teaching and scholarly research and publication.

We further engage in service by producing cultural programs and participating in out-of-class endeavors which will benefit our students, the university and our surrounding communities.
