Active & Applied Learning
We help you take your learning out into the world and put it to use.
We value skills and tools that guide students toward success as critical thinkers, communicators and leaders.
We work across disciplines to deliver unique solutions to changing educational and community needs.
Creative Problem Solvers
We dream big, and we take students along as we explore environmental, cultural and historical issues from a global viewpoint.
In many cases, we (literally) wrote the book or framed the scholarly conversation on key issues.
Give us a problem. We work with colleagues to find the tools, techniques and pathways to a solution.
Innovators and Collaborators
Faculty devotes time and energy to campus and community programs that enhance learning and lead a variety of professional organizations.
