Dear College of Humanities folks,

"Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much." Helen Keller

Right now, you may be feeling scared or anxious or unsure about the future. It is certainly a time of turmoil and change.   

It is essential at times like this that we care for each other, for our families and for ourselves. And that is exactly what you all have been doing. Students, staff, and faculty have demonstrated generosity, dedication, resilience, and care. I thank each and every one of you for everything you have done.

As we move forward into the next few weeks, I want to assure all of you that your health and well-being are the top priority. Our campus administrators are working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health on workable, flexible plans to create a safe working environment that will allow learning to continue.  

As we move to alternate modes of instruction, the campus will remain open and accessible, as of now. Students and faculty, if you need to access computer labs or the library or other campus resources, these remain operational. Other resources are also available to you and we are currently working on a list that we will be pushing out to everyone. 

Each of us has a little constellation of people within our field of care. Let's all do our best to keep ourselves and our loved ones and our community members safe and thriving. Please let all of us here in the Dean's office know how we can help you to do that.

Below are some links to get you started. We'll be updating as we get more information...

In health and in safety, 

Jackie Stallcup

Welcome to Humanities

As education becomes ever more focused on professional degrees and vocational training, employers increasingly report that what they seek is not necessarily more specialized degrees but rather people who can think, who can synthesize, who can analyze, and who can apply a broad base of thought to a wide variety of areas. The College of Humanities teaches students to read, write and think. Our graduates are prepared for a 21st-century workforce that advances those who have the power not just to achieve and innovate but to communicate their ideas to an audience beyond their applied field.
