The College of Liberal Arts at Colorado State University seeks applications for the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts. The College of Liberal Arts (CLA) brings Colorado State University’s land-grant mission to life by utilizing the transformative power of the arts, humanities, and social sciences to provide educational, research, experiential opportunities that create real-world impact for our students, faculty, and staff. The Dean is the principal administrative and academic officer of the College and reports to the University’s Provost/Executive Vice President. The Dean is responsible for managing and ensuring the quality of the College’s academic programs, implementing policies, managing personnel and financial resources, and securing internal and external support. The Dean provides leadership to the College by establishing a compelling vision and implementing a strategic plan to achieve that vision.  

Through teaching, research, and outreach, liberal arts faculty actively engage in creating positive change in the lives of our students and our communities, both locally and globally. Our society’s most pressing problems, from climate change to social justice, require the creative, collaborative, and complex ways of thinking and making the Liberal Arts typifies. Multiple methodologies proliferate–from cutting-edge microscopy redefining human origins to feeding split-logs into a firewood kiln, from political theory to the philosophy of science, from social justice to visions of an equitable world, from writing a sonnet to applied community-engaged research–and overlap. These intersections, where the field edges into another field, position the CLA as one of CSU’s most vitally collaborative colleges. The Center for Public Deliberation, the Center for Environmental Justice, the University Center for the Arts, and the newly-established Joe Blake Center for Engaged Humanities build frameworks for interdisciplinary and engaged scholarship. Our award-winning faculty engage in world-class research and creative endeavors and engage in innovative teaching practices, all in hopes of bettering our rapidly changing world.
