Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the virtual home of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of the District of Columbia.  The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is the largest academic unit in the institution, and it shoulders the lion's share of academic offerings and support services for students.  The College lives the institutional expectation of a liberal arts education for all UDC students.  Our programs interweave responsibility for intentional learning that is both broad and specific and tied to job readiness, career advancement, and social satisfaction lifelong.  Moreover, our programs embody our land grant mission as we strive to respond to regional concerns of health disparities, educational relevance and equity, and political equality.

CAS is undergoing a strategic restructuring in concert with national trends in higher education and emerging local priorities.  The unfolding opportunities for current and prospective students, faculty, and staff are creative and forward reaching.  Most importantly, CAS is embracing new directions which are immediately responsive to global expectations for the 21st century college graduate. 

I invite you to explore our offerings via this site.  Our brick and mortar site is always available and, we are prepared to respond to your questions in person, by email, and by phone.  Please remember, we are on the move and our quest for a leaner, greener, and optimally relevant set of academic offerings will cause some transitions in our spaces.  Our goal is to maintain a current and true representation of our programs, events, policies, and practices.  Please look for alerts to changes and updates and many other exciting things to come. 

Thank you for your interest in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of the District of Columbia.  Whether you're seeking to combat foodborne illness as a world renowned scientist, challenge artistic expression as a contemporary Bauhaus scholar, or you simply want to refresh your conversational Chinese for a study or work abroad opportunity, we look forward to serving your higher education needs.  We invite your partnership, we welcome your feedback, and, again, we appreciate your interest.
