College of Liberal Arts

In the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), undergraduate and graduate students are challenged in and out of the classroom to not only learn, but apply knowledge in both local and global contexts. Our undergraduate majors and graduate creative writing programs encourage civic responsibility, social justice, and inclusive leadership.
