College of Arts & Sciences

John Lemmon, Ph.D., Dean

Our college focuses on the personal as well as the professional development of the university community. An important element of our core curriculum is the education and training of students in the development of interpersonal skills, empathy, and respect for others as well as self-reflection and self-awareness.

The College of Arts and Sciences seeks to engage students in understanding the significance of their own humanity and to maximize their potential for creativity, critical thinking, spiritual development, social responsibility and global citizenship. Students acquire necessary skills to achieve intellectual, moral, and aesthetic excellence; they recognize the importance of life-long learning, community service, and the University’s commitment to peace and justice. The college promotes the arts by providing cultural events of the highest caliber that engage students and faculty in the cultural life of the region.
