College Advocacy Board

The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Advocacy Board is a volunteer group of interested and prominent supporters of UCA’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.  The central purpose of the organization is to assist the CAHSS in advancing education at the undergraduate and graduate levels for UCA students enrolled in communication, fine and performing arts, liberal arts and humanities, and the social sciences, as well as enhancing service on behalf of the college to arts patrons, alumni, the community, and external stakeholders.


The purpose of the CAHSS Advocacy Board is as follows:

  • Become an informed advocate for the UCA College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, its dedication and contributions to quality education, its performances/exhibitions/festivals/productions/readings, and its research/scholarship/practice.
  • Advance the mission of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences by providing counsel and guidance to the Dean, Department Chairs, College Directors, and College Faculty.
  • Be actively engaged in, assist, and support fundraising efforts of the College.
  • Facilitate the recruitment, retention, and placement of students in/for the College.
  • Provide worthwhile contacts for CAHSS faculty and students as they pursue their artistic/educational/professional goals.
  • Offer insight and advice into the external environment – whether from business, artistic, political, or legislative trends – which affects the mission and strategic plan of the College.
