Liberal Arts Engagement Hub
The Liberal Arts Engagement Hub (The Hub) in the College of Liberal Arts is a vehicle to deepen our culture of engagement with the community. Housed in a newly renovated Pillsbury Hall, the Hub manifests the College’s commitment to engaging humanistic scholars in the arts, humanities, and social sciences in a reciprocal partnership with the community to respond to important social problems.
