The mission of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences is to prepare students for lifelong learning and responsible democratic citizenship. The dean is responsible for allocating resources to support and advance that mission. To that end, a number of committees and councils advise the dean. In order to contact the chair of any committee or council listed below, contact the Office of the Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (firstname.lastname@example.org or 609-771-3434).
