Life at CASL

Educating tomorrow’s Difference Makers

A 21st-century education goes beyond the traditional classroom walls. Anthropologists visit Italy to unearth historic remains. A biology major spends years in a lab researching cures for triple negative breast cancer. And political scientists get experience working alongside top lawmakers. College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters faculty engage their students outside the traditional classroom, providing them with tools to succeed after graduation.

Learning in the Community

The College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters is committed to impacting our community through collaborative projects and initiatives that connect students to real-world applications and allow faculty to contribute their expertise to solving today’s problems.

High-Impact Practices (HIPs)

The College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters recognizes that the undergraduate student experience is about more than choosing a major and taking classes. So we provide hands-on experiences to undergraduates — seminars, engaging programs, and community experiences that go beyond or expand upon academic majors.
