A Message from the Dean
The variety of conversations taking place in Fontaine Hall makes the School of Liberal Arts a dynamic learning community. Close faculty and student relationships and interdisciplinary analysis, including team-taught courses, are crucial to our work here.
Observing and participating in these kinds of dialogue in the classroom and on our campus sharpens our students' awareness of the complexity of 21st-century problems and develops innovative solutions for them.
Dr. Martin Shaffer, Dean
