The College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences (CLASS) thrives with the generosity and support from people like you!
CLASS is a fusion of the performing arts, humanities, and social sciences. Our students have the opportunity to explore and interpret the human experience and collaborate with faculty and fellow peers on research initiatives. Our various programs reflect the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff. CLASS encourages a space of inclusivity, curiosity, and acceptance. In our College, students can participate in academic clubs such as Model Organization of American States, Model United Nations, Psy Chi, or CLASS Council, providing another avenue to gain hands-on learning experience. Our goal is to support our students and equip them with the fundamental skills needed to succeed in life and enrich the world and the communities in which we live.
This Giving Day, please consider making a gift to one of the Department Excellence Funds for immediate, short-term goals, or towards department scholarships for our students! Select your favorite department or program below to make a gift today!
