Center for the Advancement of the Liberal Arts
The Center for the Advancement of the Liberal Arts, or CALA, founded by the College of Liberal Arts, focuses on interdisciplinary research and cross-disciplinary collaboration, promotion of the Liberal Arts, curriculum development, and public outreach concerning research and education in the Liberal Arts and beyond. CALA is a central location for collaboration among faculty members from across departments and community stakeholders.
Our mission is to facilitate interdisciplinary, student-centered research and curricula through the support of interdisciplinary initiatives and public outreach involving the Liberal Arts. Our vision for the Center for the Advancement of Liberal Arts is similar, to create an environment where interdisciplinary study is encouraged and the value of the Liberal Arts is effectively communicated to the benefit of all students, faculty, and stakeholders.
