Dean's Welcome

Lisa Steelman, Dean

Welcome to the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts. We are glad you are here. Use the links across the top of the page and on the navigation bar to the left and to explore all our college has to offer.

Here in the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts we believe that innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems can only be discovered through a deep understanding of human complexities (psychology, behavior, history, communication) and the capacity to think creatively and critically, cultivated through discourse in humanities, philosophy and even music.

Diversity and inclusion is key to everything we do in the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts. We offer diverse programs ranging from forensic psychology, clinical psychology, applied behavior analysis, industrial/organizational psychology, multiplatform communication, humanities and pre law, and several music ensembles. We also have a diverse and engaged student body, one of the most diverse in the nation. We learn much from each other every day.

Our mission is to educate our students to be global citizens and the leaders of the future. Our innovative undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degree programs provide a springboard for student achievement. Small classes and a collegial, supportive educational environment are hallmarks of our college. Our classes and programs combine classroom learning with real world experience and research and scholarship opportunities. Our curriculum prepares students to conceptualize broadly, think critically, communicate effectively and interact positively with diverse populations here and abroad. We take pride in our world class faculty of nationally and internationally known scholars and researchers who are leaders in their disciplines. Faculty produce impactful work in the wide-ranging fields of autism treatment to the menace of mosquitos, and well beyond. Join us for an intellectual and educational experience like no other!
