Spartan Voices

Social work led to a long and productive career in child welfare. My career culminated in heading up a project that raised $14 million, and built the county a multi-service shelter that provided temporary care for abused and neglected children. Social work also led to a path of community arts activism and leadership.

The college’s four schools and seven departments provide students with a theoretical base developed and tested through research, knowledge that can be applied in diverse systems, processes that incorporate human understanding and cooperation, and supervised practice in a variety of career-related settings. We provide the skills and experiences that empower graduates to be exemplary members of a diverse and global community who work to improve the quality of life for present and future generations.

We are proud of recent accomplishments our commitment to excellence has enabled:

  • Advertising, newsprint and magazine students now collaborate in the completely renovated Convergence News Room (former Spartan Daily), thanks to Jack and Emma Anderson’s Journalism Technology gift.
  • A multimillion-dollar grant from USAID and a matching grant from Cisco were secured to develop social work undergraduate programs in eight universities throughout Vietnam.

I am grateful to loyal supporters who have helped enable our successes. I encourage your involvement and investment in the future of our college and our students so that we can reach our goals to:

  • Increase international travel programs and learning opportunities for students.
  • Enhance research opportunities and equipment, and upgrade laboratories used by students and faculty members.

 This is a great time to make a commitment and invest in what promises to be a dynamic and exciting tomorrow for our college and the university. Please make your gift to the College of Applied Sciences and Arts today!

Thank you,

Charles C. Bullock
Dean, College of Applied Sciences and Arts
