Message from Dean Valencia E. Matthews, Ph.D.

Greetings and welcome to the College of Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, fondly known as CSSAH, where we produce Exceptional Artists, Dynamic Leaders and Extraordinary Social Activists.  CSSAH is a multidisciplinary college connecting students to the world with an array of learning opportunities including research, internships, co-op, service learning, online instruction, and experiential scholarship. Students examine enduring and systemic questions about human nature and social behavior. They study the organization and functions government, the interrelations of global societies and political systems. Our students are challenged to examine critically how the world is shaped by diverse values, histories and cultures. 

We are the Keepers of the Culture,
Protectors of Freedom and Ambassadors of Creativity
