Since 1968, when the college was officially established, it engages with all students at the university through the many core courses offered at UNI. CHAS classes offer non-majors a foundation in the humanities, arts and sciences, which help students develop an ability to think critically about the world around us, communicate effectively with a wide variety of audiences, and work to solve complex problems. By instilling skills for success, CHAS works to prepare all who pass through its doors for advancement in their careers and function as life-long learners.
