Learning for Change

Every one of our undergraduates gains a firm foundation in the liberal arts, preparing them to be excellent verbal and written communicators, to think critically, and to be proactive problem solvers. It’s a foundation for each of them, but also for society, preparing them to serve, lead, and—yes—change the world.
