During this intense period of transition at Michigan State University, the College of Arts & Letters has sought to take the lead in embodying the culture change we hope to foster across the university and more broadly in higher education. This has required our intentional identification of core values and a disciplined commitment to live up to those values in every decision we make and in every initiative we undertake. This values-enacted approach is a key to building trust across the College so that each member of our community is able to do meaningful work that elevates our capacity to live up to the land-grant ideal of broad access to excellent education and research.
