We will encourage and support innovative interdisciplinary collaborations and engage local, national and global audiences through our research and creative activity.
Our values shape our vision of the college's future. We value:
A Liberal Education. Along with in-depth study in specific areas of interest, exposure to wide-ranging educational experiences across many academic fields inspires student achievement and establishes the groundwork for lifelong success.
Excellence in teaching and research. Outstanding learning opportunities, research excellence and a pervasive commitment to student success are our hallmarks. Teaching and scholarship are fully integrated, as we engage students at all levels in our research and creative activities.
Diversity. Diversity of backgrounds, interests, intellectual approaches, global perspectives and identities is essential to our culture of deep and engaged learning.
Social responsibility. Public engagement with local, national and global audiences strengthens our impact and influence.
The College of Arts and Sciences is the intellectual and cultural heart of the University of Delaware. We emphasize both the enduring value of a liberal education and the importance of cultivating new and emerging fields of knowledge and artistic expression. Members of our college are dedicated artists, scholars, scientists and professionals, who teach, mentor and advise while creating new knowledge. We foster excellence in scholarship, creative work and public service, educating students to be thoughtful, ethical and engaged leaders. We offer broad and balanced undergraduate, graduate and professional education programs. We engage with local, national and global communities to understand and address their needs, and to share the insights and results of our academic and creative work.
