LPCS is a unique and diverse department. The faculty and students celebrate this diversity and believe that an important part of becoming an educated person is achieving an understanding of one’s self, others and how we connect with each other and the world. The department invites all those interested in exploring thought, expression, and values in a global context to join with us.
