College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

10th Anniversary of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

 10th anniversary of CLAS

Academic year 2013-2014 marks the tenth anniversary of  the GVSU College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  Under the leadership of Founding Dean Frederick J. Antczak, the college has grown to more than 50 bachelor degrees (and a growing number of advanced degrees) in the natural and mathematical sciences, the fine arts and humanities, and the social sciences.  500 tenured and tenure track faculty as well as affiliate, visiting and adjunct faculty bring a robust and varied liberal education to many thousands of students in CLAS majors and general education and foundational courses to all undergraduate students at Grand Valley State University.

To celebrate this milestone, CLAS will highlight activities in the college throughout the year.  Additional events will be added.
