Your support is also transforming the College by empowering faculty.

  • The Dean's Fund for Excellence supports the research and creative work of our faculty and enable students to explore the world, test out new theories and ideas and allows faculty and students to collaborate and innovate across the College
  • The Center for Innovation in the Liberal & Creative Arts supports faculty innovation
  • The Center for Art Collection Ethics provides postgraduate training opportunities for art museum and trade professionals

CAHSS programs give students the chance to conduct research in the field alongside faculty whose own research appears in such publications as the New York Times, The Hill, The American Scholar and Time.

The Photography and Memory Project paired CAHSS photography students with older adults in the community.
