Preparing Students for Success and Leadership

8729461175_abac9c4627_b

The mission of the  College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at UIS is to prepare students for the future by providing a broad education for success. We teach students how to participate effectively in an interdependent, diverse, and rapidly changing world, offering education in a transformative environment that stimulates engagement with ideas, each other, and the globe.

Our objective is to help our students become:

  • Intellectually and technologically sophisticated thinkers,
  • Aesthetically aware citizens,
  • Socially responsible contributors to life in the 21st century, and
  • Effective Leaders in their community

As a result, UIS students who graduate with a CLAS degree are fuller, richer individuals who are more capable of competing in an ever-changing job market than students whose education specialized in specific technical skills—especially those skills that may be out of date in just a few years.

The University of Illinois at Springfield is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
