The College will be a community welcoming all, and will engage local, state and world partners. Specifically, we will develop the physical space and intellectual climate for bold, inventive collaboration in order to build a strong academic community and a collective identity for students, alumni, faculty and staff in the Arts & Sciences.
The College will teach to inspire curiosity, compassion and the courage to act. We will emphasize hands-on learning that rewards exploration and inquiry. We propose initiatives that transcend disciplinary boundaries, encourage teaching through research/creative work and engage the world.
The College will attract, develop and retain the world’s best scholars. We will support high-risk/high-impact projects and bring salary increases at promotion in line with national standards, and will develop a transparent and stable campus-wide funding strategy to equip cutting-edge research by our diverse community of scholars.
