We are a group of scholars who prize first-rate inquiry, intellectual diversity, and professional entrepreneurialism in our research. We also care greatly about high-quality teaching in all our classes, large and small, because it is through great instruction that we invest in future generations of effective citizens and scholars.

The department is appreciative of gifts of support in all amounts.  Alumni of our undergraduate honors program are invited to support the projects of current and future honors students.
