College of Arts & Sciences Leadership

The College of Arts & Sciences at Florida Gulf Coast University is dedicated to providing a quality liberal arts education through innovative, student-centered teaching. We foster intellectual breadth and depth, sustainability, intercultural understanding, and civic engagement to prepare students for a life that is informed, examined, and engaged. We support scholarly activity that advances teaching and contributes to the broader intellectual, artistic, cultural and professional communities with the belief that interdisciplinary collaboration and scholarship benefits our students and enhances our individual disciplines. We recognize that service is a public trust and a social responsibility.
