Welcome to the University of Redlands College of Arts & Sciences

I am pleased to welcome you to this site. As Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), I have the honor of leading over 160 full-time faculty dedicated to providing an outstanding liberal arts curriculum supportive of professional education and service to one’s community. I invite you to get to know our CAS faculty, who are accomplished artists, researchers, musicians, scientists, writers and scholars within their respective fields. You will find teachers who have dedicated themselves to providing educational opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, that serve students well beyond their time at the University of Redlands.

Our outstanding liberal arts-based education also benefits from the many staff and administrators committed to supporting student development. You will find engaged CAS personnel in the Study Abroad Office, Academic Success and Disability Services, Native Student Programs, Science Center, Johnston Center for Integrative Studies, School of Music, Truesdail Center, and Armacost Library. This is in addition to the many supportive staff within each of the 40+ CAS academic departments and programs.

CAS is a place in which learning for both undergraduate and graduate students is prioritized. You’ll discover this as you explore our 40+ academic undergraduate majors and minors and our three graduate programs in Communication Science and Disorders, Geographic Information Systems, and Music. I am confident that you will find an area of study that can speak to your interests. Along with my CAS Dean’s Office staff, I stand ready to ensure that every student’s experience within CAS is as positive as possible.

Social psychologist Kendrick T. Brown specializes in social issues, public policy and diversity. His research has included studies on the effects of skin tone bias (treating others differently because of their skin color) on African American well-being, how interactions with teammates of color help shape white student-athletes’ racial attitudes, and the attitudes of dominant groups toward policies that address racial inequality in the United States and the European Union.

Brown became dean of the College in July 2016. Prior to Redlands, he served as acting provost and associate dean of the faculty at Macalester College, a small, private, residential liberal arts institution in St. Paul, Minn. He earned his B.A. from Mount Union College in Ohio and his M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
