Lenses of the Liberal Arts: Events in November

Lenses of the Liberal Arts: exploring human issues through different perspectives
Lenses of the Liberal Arts: exploring human issues through different perspectives

The College of Liberal Arts regularly hosts events and programs that foster informed conversations about complex issues.

By exploring issues using the many lenses of the liberal arts, we gain different perspectives and new understandings of the historical, social, cultural, political, and environmental concerns of our time.

Through these events, the College’s disciplines promote engaged dialogue, heightened awareness and deeper understanding of topics critical to our community, ultimately advancing the human experience.
