Organizational Sketch


The organization of departments into colleges began with the 1976-1977 academic year. The departments under the current COLA were divided between the College of Humanities and the College of Social Sciences. The COLA was created in the fall of 1988 from the combination of certain departments from those two Colleges. Some departments were added to the newly created College of Health and Human Services. Also within the COLA is the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts, which includes the Department of Art, the Department of Music, and the Department of Theatre and Dance. Most of the courses offered by those departments, as well as their offices, are located at the River Campus. The COLA runs an Advising Center and its departments manage various centers and organizations. The Department of Communication Studies manages the Speakerís Resource Center, and the Department of Music runs the Music Academy. The Department of English administers the Center for Faulkner Studies, established in 1989 after the acquisition of the Brodsky Collection of Faulkner materials. The Department of History houses the Center for Regional History and Cultural Heritage, founded in 1979, which seeks to document, preserve, and present aspects of the regionís heritage.
