Center for the Liberal Arts

The Center for the Liberal Arts (CLA) supports a robust liberal arts education through the continual organizing and infusing of content, integration, creativity, and innovation throughout the undergraduate College Curriculum.

Appointed from the faculty for two-year terms, CLA Fellows provide intellectual leadership and representation from the arts and humanities, social sciences, and natural and computational sciences, along with interdisciplinary programs.

Currently the Fellows are coordinating with the faculty an ambitious number of informational lunch-time meetings and brainstorming seminars focused on the development of new courses, themes, and visitors in support of the campus COLL 300.  We anticipate launching a number of programs to assist faculty in achieving the aspirational goals of COLL 400.
