School of Humanities and Social Sciences News

Welcome to the Spring 2017 semester!  Whether you are just joining the Stevenson community, about to begin your final semester, or somewhere in between, we wish you a productive and inspiring semester and hope to see you at many of our upcoming HaSS events.

Writing for the political blog, The Hill, Frederick M. Lawrence makes a compelling case for a broad education as central to American democracy.  He writes that beyond military or economic strength, nations are also defined by their ability to drive innovation and generate new ideas: "the literacy and intellectual sophistication that underpinned the founding of our country remains essential to our future. They enable both America's external impact on the world and the internal functioning of our economy and our democracy."  Simply put, studying the arts and sciences helps to prepare engaged citizens for a lifetime of success.

If this morning's 14-degree weather wasn't to your taste, just imagine spending the month in Jamaica.  That's what a group of Stevenson University Human Services students are doing during this winter session--learning about international human services organizations and volunteering with Amizade Global Service Learning at several local sites, including the ECI School where they have been building a playground.  Follow their adventures at Mustangs in Jamaica on Facebook.

In a recent piece for the Huffington Post, Brock Blomberg, President of Ursinus College, discusses how universities--particularly small schools and colleges--can provide opportunities for individuals to practice trust and develop social relationships.  The social sciences have much to teach us about how we interact with one another, and university classrooms may be a place where we can begin to explore the potential benefits of trusting and learning from those whose opinions and experiences differ from our own.
