Office of the Dean
John Coleman, Dean
Welcome to the University of Minnesota’s College of Liberal Arts, one of the nation’s premier liberal arts institutions.
Our pursuit of excellence in research and creative work, our commitment to working in partnership with communities and organizations from the local to the global, and our determination to fully prepare students for their future are what define us. When they graduate, our students are poised for lifelong career success and civic engagement.
The culturally and economically vibrant landscape of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area allows us to partner with everyone from community leaders to small nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies to offer unique opportunities for our faculty, students, and staff.
Whether you are a future student or a parent, alumnus, or community member, we are happy to have you as a part of our community.
-John Coleman, dean
