ENGAGE with cutting edge research and creative work from graduate students across the college. Featuring topics ranging from the philosophy of science, and  life expectancy inequality to the intersection of race, place, and historical narrative, and transforming social institutions. Students will converse with guests in a casual setting about the impact of their work.
REVISIT the history of CLA through Calling to Question. This exhibition celebrates the people in the College of Liberal Arts.  It explores the challenges they have faced, and how they have questioned both the college itself and the role of liberal education in society. Through their struggles we see how liberal education promotes questioning as a way to strive for the betterment of the human condition—sometimes successfully and sometimes not.
