Pillars of Distinction

Our goal at the School of Liberal Arts is to foster and promote innovative scholarship, transformative research, and creative inquiry. We believe that a holistic liberal arts education founded on dynamic relationships between students and faculty is essential to generating new ways of learning and collaborating in our present and future. 

As we embrace our potential to lead conversations that matter both locally and nationally, we've identified four key identifiers of the School of Liberal Arts—distinctive pillars for our next stage of excellence, and continued growth and success. 

  1. A Global Liberal Arts 

  1. An R1 Research University with a Liberal Arts College Approach 

  1. Our Location in New Orleans and the Gulf South 

  1. Educating Next Generation Leaders for Careers of the Future
