The Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences have always been the heart of Westfield State's tradition of a broad liberal arts curriculum. This is the largest of the new colleges, in terms of faculty, students, and programs. Westfield State, with the help of several generous donors, recently inaugurated the Catherine Dower Performing and Fine Arts Center, housing the Music, Art, and Theatre programs, as well as making the University an All-Steinway School. This is a substantial commitment of the University to these fields at Westfield State.


The search committee is meeting in November to begin formulating the position description. Once that is completed, the position description and other related materials will be posted to the University's Human Resources website. The search committee will query the campus community on what they hope for in a leader and how they expect the incumbent to meet the needs of the college and the University. The search process will include an initial screening of the materials received in application by candidates,  possible initial online conversations, and for finalists, on-campus interviews. On-campus interviews will include conversations with a broad range of campus constituents.

The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences is home to:
