Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities Todd Shiver thinks it is important to honor students and faculty within the College of Arts and Humanities because they “go above and beyond.”

“Some students excel beyond their classmates. In our college they may have a special talent… I think deserve a little recognition for that,” Shiver said.

Interim Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities Scott Robinson believes the relationship between students and faculty is a big reason for the success of the college.

“I think the relationship is different in our college because we are humanists. We have a humanistic point of view and it is about the human touch,” Robinson said. “The relationships we have faculty to students are about those human touches and that’s what the students and faculty key in on.”
