A Welcome from Dean Ilene Feinman:

Welcome! Bienvenidos!

Thank you for visiting our webpage for the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Our mission shapes everything we do from the dean’s office work to the students we serve. We know ourselves as a community of learners and welcome opportunities to learn with you. We want to know your story, we want to know your aspirations, and we want to share with you a college community eager to support you on your way. If you are a non-student visitor to the page, we would love to show you around our programs and our faculty and students’ accomplishments. We would also welcome the opportunity to share our dreams with you. Please browse this site and get in touch if you would like a tour of any of our programs, or an opportunity to have coffee with the dean and learn more about the college as a whole and how you might connect with us!
