College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences
Help us change the world

The College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences is changing the world. 

With the humanities as our guide, the college is committed to bettering society.

Your gifts go toward so many initiatives that help our students and the world flourish, including internships, study abroad, and community outreach and education. For example, students in our college teach and mentor Kenyan refugees. They also send books to inmates in Virginia prisons as part of a prison education project.

Your support allows our faculty to conduct world-changing research. Researchers explore mental health access, analyze ways that children interact with technology, and find solutions for neighborhoods that suffer from poor urban planning practices.

Your gifts to the college have a direct impact on our faculty and students. You help us thrive. We are so thankful for your support.
