New Initiatives and Accolades for the College of Liberal Arts

The College of Liberal Arts is proud to announce these new initiatives:

  • A new research center, the Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI), created by Professor Stephan Weiler in his three-year role as Morgan Chair. REDI builds on Professor Weiler’s considerable experience and exercise in regional economics to understand the similarities in urban and rural economies. This is a notable example of engaged research, where we bring to bear knowledge created in our college directly to issues important to the communities we live in and serve.

  • The newly launched college initiative: The Digital Liberal Arts (DLA) Hub. Housed in the recently renovated Eddy Hall, DLA provides a physical home and defined space for faculty and students to collaborate as they explore emerging technologies and their impact on research and teaching.
