Title

College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Student Awards Reception, 2009

Description

Originally, UMBC set up a system of academic divisions instead of colleges, including the Divisions of Humanities, Mathematics, Science, Social Sciences. A Dean of Arts and Sciences replaced the Dean of Faculty in 1980, and the the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering were set up by 1984. As the number of academic departments and centers grew, so did the workload and strain grow for the College of Arts and Sciences. The administration and Faculty Senate began to investigate an alternate structure that would best serve the academic departments, faculty, and students, without adding unnecessary barriers between departments and groups that collaborate. A compromise was reached, and in 2004 the College of Arts and Sciences was divided into the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS) and the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (CNMS), joining the College of Computer Science and Engineering at UMBC.
