Mission Statement

The College of Arts and Sciences seeks to engage students in a principled search for intellectual growth and development.  In the same progressive spirit that motivated its founders, the College strives to provide all students an education in the liberal arts, so they may acquire, create, communicate, and integrate knowledge to enrich their own lives and be prepared for positions of responsibility and usefulness as active citizens of their local communities and our global society. The College profits from its capital city location, embraces diversity in its faculty and student body, and promotes a shared purpose through interdisciplinary opportunities, small classes, and individual instruction.
