interests, cross-cultural understanding, and solutions to problems of
local and global scope.

liberal arts college is complemented by an institute for advanced
research, sponsoring cutting-edge projects across the Arts,
Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and Engineering.

research and teaching opportunities. The appointment might begin as

Review of applications will begin December 1 and continue until the
