The College of Arts and Letters at MSU is a very special place,” says Dean Christopher Long. “We try to live out the core purpose of the land grant mission to put the liberal arts at the center of that mission and to enable the research and education that happens at the university to be more holistic, more meaningful, and oriented toward the broader commitments to create a just and meaningful world.”
