"Each of my monthly messages this fall highlights a different area of the College of Arts & Sciences. This month’s focus is the humanities.

"Recently I had the good fortune to speak with Dr. Jenny Thomas, a pediatrician and graduate of our college (English ’89), who highlighted for me the important work to which we are called. Echoing the cover story of our 2020 A&S Magazine, Dr. Thomas credits her Arts and Sciences education with preparing her to thrive in career and life..."

"During the coming year, the college will continue to pursue three goals: to sharpen our identity, to provide programs that meet the needs of students and the world and to garner support for the college. None of these pursuits is possible without embracing diversity, equity and inclusion."
