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 aspires to educate its students in the liberal arts so they can acquire, create, communicate, and integrate knowledge to enrich their own lives and to prepare them for positions of responsibility and usefulness as active citizens of their local communities and our global society. The College finds supportive strengths in its capital city location, its diverse student body, its distinct academic units working to fulfill a shared purpose, and its emphasis on both small classes and individual instruction.
