College Leadership

As the largest college at the University of Minnesota, “dedicated to education in the liberal tradition that fosters enriched, productive, and satisfying lives,” CLA leadership takes seriously its responsibility to advance the liberal education of students across the university. CLA’s mission is to guarantee that students are exposed to and become proficient with broad, pluralistic, and complex forms of knowledge. It prepares students to think and act creatively, compassionately, and ethically in their private and public lives and to respond to the needs of others in local and global contexts. College leadership believes that a liberal arts education should promote active, experiential learning; foster students’ intellectual passion and curiosity; and prepare students for their lives after graduation and to take their place as global citizens.
