Dean
College of Literature, Science, and the Arts

We are two months into the fall semester, and I am energized by the vibrant presence of students, faculty, and staff on campus. In classrooms, labs, and studios all across the college, we’re teaching in new, innovative ways, building on all we learned over the past year and a half. The contagious curiosity, creativity, and probing questions that students bring with them remain unchanged. And students continue to have life-changing experiences outside the classroom, pursuing activities that bring them purpose and joy, and forging lifelong friendships.

Today, the College of LSA is meeting this moment of global change, ongoing crisis, and lingering uncertainty by tackling our toughest problems. Here are some of the ways that we are reinvigorating liberal arts education and research, and making it more equitable and relevant than ever:

  • Preparing an inclusive and diverse student body to explore boldly and engage the problems and opportunities of society—all with the goal of developing students as rigorous, empathetic thinkers who will lead meaningful lives and pursue rewarding careers.
  • Transforming undergraduate education to better support students with innovations in teaching, access, financial support, and institutional equity. We are changing our approach to foundational courses, supporting students through new scholarships and programming, and (through the LSA Opportunity Hub) providing individualized paths for career exploration.
  • Conducting leading-edge and relevant research on the most complex issues of our time, such as climate, racial equity and justice, digital citizenship, and more.

LSA prepares students to meet their own life moments while making sense of the world through a world-class liberal arts education. We are asking profound and exciting questions about human existence, creating art and literature, uncovering the workings of the natural world, and studying history to better inform our future. By making a gift to the LSA Fund for Need-Based Student Support or one of our other important causes, you are directly supporting students and the important work happening on campus right now. Thank you for all that you do to support the college and our students.

Sincerely,
Dean Anne Curzan Signature
