The Universe of Arts and Letters
The College of Arts and Letters (CAL) is the cultural
connection at Northern Arizona University.
The college contains eight academic departments,
encompassing philosophy, humanities, religion, history, languages, and English,
as well as music, theatre, and the visual arts. CAL also houses and oversees
the NAU Art Museum, the Martin-Springer Institute (promoting lessons of the
Holocaust), Ardrey Memorial Auditorium and
Ashurst Hall, and interdisciplinary minors such as Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, and Cinema Studies.
In addition, the College of Arts and Letters provides over 350 events per academic year in the areas of fine arts, film, music, theatre, and internationally recognized speakers.
How You Can Support CAL
Although NAU is a public institution, state support has been
declining steadily. We rely on the generosity of the private sector, including
our alumni, individual friends of our departments and programs, foundations and
corporations to maintain our high standard of scholastic achievement.
The College of Arts and Letters has a number of funds
representing all eight departments through the NAU Foundation.
CAL also encourages donors and friends to contribute to the
Dean’s Fund for Excellence. This fund provides discretionary support through
unrestricted gifts. The Dean’s Fund for Excellence allows the Interim Dean of CAL, Dr. Jean Boreen, to designate financial support, as needed throughout the college.
