Dean of Division of Liberal Arts, Rachel Williams

Office of the Dean

In the Division of Liberal Arts, arts-centric faculty offer courses in composition, foreign languages (French, German, and Italian), history, humanities, literature, mathematics, media studies, philosophy, psychology, science, and writing in styles ranging from traditional lectures and seminars to project and studio based courses. They aim to inspire curiosity about the world, to demonstrate the pleasure and interest in becoming educated, and to introduce the habits of life-long learners, believing, as did American philosopher John Dewey, that “education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
