To advance the limits of knowledge, promote innovation, and transform theory into practice, Arts and Sciences professors pursue a rigorous agenda of scholarship and applied research. Much of this work is cross-disciplinary, with faculty from various departments collaborating with one another, as well as with scholars at other colleges and universities. Acumen chronicles the research, scholarship, and creative work that invigorates the College of Arts and Sciences at Lehigh.
The College of Arts and Sciences hosts an amazing collection of people and ideas and Acumen was developed to share the vitality and breadth of scholarship within the college. Acumen is a fitting title for this magazine, as it invokes our ability to provide insight and shed light on significant issues and human endeavors: here lies the core of our scholarship. Among the pages you will find that the wide-ranging work makes connections for you.
