Who We Are
The College of Liberal Arts is a community of arts, humanities, and social science scholars who study the cultural, social, environmental, and historical context in which we live, and examine what it means to be human.
Our students and faculty share a commitment to the well-being of the human community, the natural environment in which we live, and to the inspiration of the human spirit.
By The Numbers
The College of Liberal Arts strategic plan is our shared mission until 2025 and was developed through a Guiding Coalition from the dean’s office, three college-wide Task Forces, and Department selection of action items.
The plan has three strategic directions to inform how we work, teach, learn, research and create:
- Discovery with impact
- Thriving beyond COVID
- Structures for success
History of the College
Colorado State University’s College of Liberal Arts has existed under its current name and structure since 1992, but the liberal arts have been essential to the University since its first class in 1880. Read more about the history of the College and how we continue to advance the human experience.
