Meet the Dean


Dean Knotts is most proud of helping students achieve their goals. Student success, he says, is his primary motivator.

Gibbs Knotts, Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, also values HSS’s exceptional faculty and the fact that they are accomplished teacher-scholars who have a passion for working closely with students. He applauds the outstanding undergraduate research and mentoring opportunities offered in HSS, including the Bully Pulpit Series, the Civility Initiative, the Women’s Health Research Team, the Environmental Policy Research Group, Crossing the Cistern HSS and HSS LEAP. 

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences offers students an interdisciplinary community that celebrates the diversity of its members and prepares them for career and life.
