Abstract/ Summary

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences aspires to offer the most in depth, diverse and challenging liberal arts education at an American research university, while cultivating a student-centered and community-engaged campus environment, inspiring learning that lasts a lifetime.

We aspire to be the premier liberal arts and sciences college based in an American research university, a destination for undergraduate and graduate students seeking a liberal arts and sciences education and a gateway to global opportunities for the community at large. We will lead in cultural, technological and scientific educational programs that prepare students to meet the challenges of the 21st century by teaching creative thinking, critical inquiry, and deep cultural awareness. Our students will gain a rich sense of the importance of the liberal arts and sciences in stimulating creativity and innovation, skills central to actively participating in the economic, environmental, cultural, and social well-being of Maine, New England, the nation and the international community.
