Message from the Dean
Poverty, inequality, homelessness, voter enfranchisement, and global climate change. These are just some of the most pressing concerns facing the world today. And these are the issues that engage our students and faculty in the School of Sciences and Social Sciences every day.
Education is an active process – our students learn through research, service learning, and active citizenship. We emphasize critical thinking and creative problem solving as a way to approach any challenge. We challenge and support diverse learners and encourage strong relationships among our students, our faculty and our staff. We’ll look at every topic from a global perspective, and discover ways to promote social justice, environmental sustainability, and active collaboration with our community partners. We aim to make a difference, for our students and the world--and we do. More about Message from the Dean
