Message from the Dean


Dean2020Our modern society is one of choices: how should we choose our career, our lifestyle, and our relationships? The liberal arts education GIS provides will help you to develop your ability to make wise decisions with your life. Accumulating knowledge from multiple disciplines will allow you to better understand the complexities of the world we all share. You will acquire skills to critically analyze problems facing the global community and consider the effectiveness of the solutions each discipline provides. Studying at an increasingly in-depth level will hone your ability to identify problems that may not be apparent at first glance. Developing such an awareness during your time at GIS will allow you to make choices that can have a positive effect on a local and global scale.
