College of Humanities & Social Sciences

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks to create everyday leaders and life-long learners. Through superior teaching, experiential experiences, and educational activities that promote and encourage critical and creative thinking, students have the opportunity to develop into productive, responsible citizens. Because it is essential to the educational process, HSS also encourages a sense of “community” wherein collaboration, diversity, respect for all people, civility, and shared governance are cultivated. As the premier liberal arts college in the intermountain west, HSS provides the individual freedom for students to find and follow the passion that will allow them to excel in their careers, their community, and their families.

SUU's Celebration of Black History Month

embraces the tradition of celebrating Black History Month from late-January through February 2019. This year's national theme is "Black  Migrations," and our BHM program features speakers from SUU and other universities, along with specially-selected movies. All events will be offered on campus to honor the roles of Black people in our history and communities. Events are free and open to the public.

Interested students are encouraged to enroll in the one-credit P/F options, History 2922 or History 3922.

 Academic programming for Black History Month is made possible by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences with additional support from the Black Student Union, the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the Department of History, Sociology, and Anthropology, and A.P.E.X.
