College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences (CAHSS)

A NEW MODEL FOR THE LIBERAL AND CREATIVE ARTS

In alignment with the University’s bold vision for higher education through DU IMPACT 2025, we are transforming liberal and creative arts education through our own Keystone Strategic Plan. As we redesign ourselves into a unified College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences, we move beyond the traditional depth-and-breadth model to add multi-disciplinary, student-centered application of knowledge and skills combined with focused support and holistic approaches to help all students to achieve their educational goals.

Keystone Experience Center for Innovation in Liberal and Creative Arts CILCA

Transformative Priority One

Revolutionize liberal and creative arts education through Keystone experiences.

We are working to ensuring every undergraduate in the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences has an integrative, student-centered education. Keystone experiences will include internships, research, or artistic productions where students work with campus or community partners.

Transformative Priority Two

Invest in the active cultivation of creativity, teaching and learning through the Center for Innovation in the Liberal and Creative Arts (CILCA).

We have launched a center to reimagine liberal and creative arts education in a way that demonstrates its applicability and adaptability across sectors, and supports continuous improvement and innovation in scholarship, creation, research, and educational practices.

Intentional Community Connections Building

Strategic Initiative One

Foster an intentional community committed to excellence, innovation, engagement, integrity, and inclusiveness.

We will create an inclusive and engaging environment for all, maximize opportunities to contribute individual talents, and foster innovation.

Strategic Initiative Two

Build a space that makes possible our transformation of a liberal and creative arts education.

A new facility is essential for building community, fulfilling our commitment, and providing a home for innovative programs and academic departments.

BE A PART OF THE FUTURE OF LIBERAL AND CREATIVE ARTS EDUCATION.
