A Message from the Dean

As Dean of the College of Social Sciences, I can tell you that your interest in our programs is a great choice. Our graduates are found in leadership positions in dozens of careers built on solid education foundations. They are judges, elected officials, planners, agency heads, teachers and administrators, sheriffs, bankers and even a recent secretary of the U.S. Treasury. Our faculty know that the work they do to inspire and educate students is a high calling that they pursue with dedication and enthusiasm. The faculty also engage in research, publishing, consulting, and communication with the media in order to give back to society the benefits of their research. Our commitment is to engage in the application of Social Sciences knowledge for the benefit of our students and the positive transformation of our broader society.

The faculty, staff, and students of the College of Social Sciences are excited and engaged with our world. We'd love to have you join us!
