About Faculty

The humanities and liberal arts are engaged with the complex, ever-evolving questions of what it means to be human. They speak to issues of human dignity, creativity, thought, justice, freedom and value amidst myriad people and places. We explore language, culture, technology and the environment, recognizing the richness offered by diversity, difference, distance and place.
