Welcome to the ‘CLA Neighborhood’!

Yes, you could call this the new CLA Intranet, but why be so formal? Helpful neighbors make for a great neighborhood, and the Neighborhood is here to help you get things done.

This new neighborhood is a revitalization effort, however. In other words, this is version one of this site, with the second version already being planned. We would appreciate any and all feedback. You’ll find a feedback link located at the bottom of every page. Most content from the previous site is already here, but there is still some content to be re-organized, migrated, or created. If you have a need to go to the old intranet site, it is still available for you to use.

CLA Intranet

The project team leading this effort is comprised of Christopher Stordalen, Colleen Ware, Sara Danzinger. We look forward the continued work in making this a great new resource for the CLA community.

CLA - Shattering Expectations

CLA's Office of Institutional Advancement recently crafted a video that captures the inspirations and aspirations of a liberal arts education. Powerful. Take a look.

The University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts is dedicated to advancing society. We find answers in the wisdom of the past, the data of the now, and in the elevation of the human condition. Together we are shattering expectations of what a liberal arts college can be.
