Beginning this academic year, we are now the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences (CAHSS). Creating a college to unify the identity and resources of our two divisions allows us to provide you—our students—with more multi-disciplinary opportunities, more coordinated support and resources, and more regular, intentional collaboration across the College, University, and community.

Simultaneously, we have launched the CAHSS Keystone Strategic Plan, our commitment to transforming liberal and creative arts education in alignment with DU IMPACT 2025. That means we're here to support you—think faculty mentors, grants, and scholarships. We're working to ensure that more graduate students can work collaboratively with faculty, while increasing the number of undergraduates who benefit from Keystone experiences like internships, artistic endeavors, community engagement, research, study abroad, and much more.

We are investing in faculty innovation and new ways of teaching and learning through our new Center for Innovation in the Liberal and Creative Arts (CILCA). And, because we know there is profoundly important work to be done to infuse inclusive excellence into everything we do, we intend to make the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences an exemplary model of community.

We also plan to build a new, state-of-the-art facility that will allow our departments, faculty, staff, and students to come together and connect, as well as provide space for alumni, community members, and friends to get to know us and become engaged in our work.

As you can imagine, we are very excited to share this good news with you and I look forward to seeing you and hearing from you throughout the year. Please continue to share your comments and questions with me.

Take care, take chances, be engaged,

Danny McIntosh, Dean
