Opportunities to explore the connections

  • images-offices-clas-clas-jpg

The Center for Liberal Arts & Society (CLAS)'s programs endeavor to provide opportunities for faculty, students and professional staff, as well as the general public, to explore the connections between our academic studies in the liberal arts and sciences and the cultural and social questions that confront us all.

CLAS provides an intellectual space for our collective and open-ended consideration of pressing civic challenges, such as increasing democratic participation, the ethics and politics of war and peace, the complex intersection of science and public policy, and the relevance of the liberal arts to society.

Through our signature programs, lectures, and colloquia, CLAS aims to enrich the curriculum, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and to demonstrate the critical relevance of liberal learning to our lives as citizens in a democracy.
