Roger White, Dean
College of Social Sciences

I feel honored and privileged to serve you as dean of the College of Social Sciences.  We in the Office of the Dean are here to provide you with help and support.  We welcome you to come see us in our Office.   If we can assist you, we will.  If not, we will work with you to find someone who can.

Our goal in the Office of the Dean is to provide students with opportunities that will prepare them for successful careers and lives; ones grounded in the Ignatian values of service to others and care for the whole person.

We encourage you to get involved in our College and in our Community.  You can serve on our Student Government Advisory Committee, or in one of the many student organizations that our faculty advises.  You may serve in an internship in a local social service agency or media outlet.  We in the Office of the Dean can help you find those opportunities. Just call or come in.    

The College of Social Sciences’ provides an up to date curriculum, and a faculty that conducts innovative teaching and research.  We work daily to improve our abilities to meet the learning needs of students in a world where change and innovation are fundamental. 

Our social science faculty is geared to identify, understand, and help to resolve the significant problems we face in the world today.  We teach and research in the areas of crime, poverty, ineffective government, international conflict, and the social media revolution that affects us all.  We also have programs to practically address issues of mental, physical and spiritual health.  As a Jesuit Catholic university, all of our programs are grounded in a commitment to Faith, Care, and Justice.
