CAS Strategic Action Plan & Vision

The aspirations of the College of Arts & Sciences emerge from a long and distinguished tradition of dedicated teacher scholars accustomed to inspire students to learn, discover, create, and do.  We reaffirm our commitment to the liberal arts in our quest to improve the human condition and preserve the natural world.

The Strategic Plan was crafted under the dedicated leadership of Professor of Psychology Lynn Bond and three faculty colleagues who chaired the subcommittees on Climate and Diversity (Gregory Ramos, Theater), the Student Experience (Meghan Cope, Geography), and Faculty Success (Judith Van Houten, Biology). In addition, Abigail McGowan (History), was named Director of Strategic Action Plans and Initiatives and has spearheaded the implementation of the plan since September of 2014.

The creation and implementation of the strategic plan was and will continue to be a team effort. I am extremely grateful for all those who participated and will contribute in the future.

CAS has defined a clear path forward without losing sight of its origins.
