Would you like to know your Arts & Humanities Dean's office a little better?
Arts & Humanities has a great team and in an effort to introduce you to each of our advisors, staff members, Dean's Associate, and the Dean, I asked them a series of fun questions. I will highlight one person a week so you can see a face with the name and hopefully make you feel connected to our team.
Let us know what you think!
