The College of Liberal Arts and Education provides an education in the liberal arts by cultivating in students both a breadth of knowledge and an awareness of the complexities of nature and human culture. It is hoped that students will develop a deep concern for values both personal and social. At the same time, liberal studies provide intellectual skills needed to assure flexibility and a capacity for self-education. Such skills and abilities have increasingly greater survival value in a world where change is constant, where no career or profession remains static, and where most people will make several major vocational changes in their lifetimes.
The mission of the college is to provide for its students the kind of liberal education which provides a foundation for future professional growth, life-long learning and a world of ever increasing change.
