Fall 2019 welcome from Dean Aistrup

Dean Joseph Aistrup

War Eagle! 

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to campus as we begin a new fall semester. This fall, the College of Liberal Arts will be hosting numerous events that are sure to be thought-provoking (Tarana Burke on Sept. 26,  and artist Esteban del Valle on Sept. 10 ), entertaining (art exhibitions, and theatre and music performances) and beneficial (Career Services initiatives). These events, performances, and exhibitions are open to all, so if you’re on campus, please join us. 
CLA is delighted to announce the addition of 44 new faculty members. With expertise in a range of subjects, these new researchers, scholars and teachers will support CLA’s mission to prepare our students for success in their fields.

I encourage everyone to participate in CLA’s strategic planning efforts. With this plan, we will be charting the course for our college for the short and long-term. Leading our planning efforts is Dr. Ana Franco-Watkins, the chair of the Department of Psychology.   
To our alumni, I hope you’ll find time to visit campus this semester. I look forward to seeing you and updating you on all the exciting and inspiring initiatives we have to offer!
