Welcome to the School of Arts and Sciences at Western Connecticut State University. On this site, I've tried to provide you with helpful resources, information about some of the outstanding work being done by our students and faculty, and answers to some frequently asked questions. But don't let the website be your last stop. Please feel free to contact me directly by email, phone, or by appointment.  At Western, we are committed to knowing our students and helping them succeed.
