Alumni & Friends

The College of Arts and Letters (CAL) at Michigan State University aspires to be a national leader in arts and humanities research and education for the 21st century. This ambition requires resources to attract, recruit, support, and retain the best, most innovative and most diverse faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students. Faculty research, teaching excellence, and enriching student experiences are at the heart of a leading-edge arts and humanities education in which the enduring strengths of the liberal arts—excellent communication, critical thinking, ethical imagination, and global engagement—combine with new and emerging scholarship committed to digital fluency, civic leadership, and innovation to deepen our understanding of the world and address the most complex challenges of our time.
