Welcome from Dean Wong

Through our wide range of disciplines runs a unifying drive to examine and understand how individuals, societies, and cultures shape the human experience across time and place. Our students learn to use evidence and logic to form convincing arguments, and to use the written and recorded word to responsibly document ideas and experiences. These are crucial, flexible skills for a world increasingly characterized by complexity, diversity, and globalization—and the foundation of our graduates’ professional and personal success.

– Jane Wong, Dean
