9.1.2 MISSION STATEMENT

The Faculty of Arts serves the University of Regina, its students, faculty and staff, and the communities that surround and support us. Our goals are the creation, discovery and communication of knowledge.

We affirm the value of creative and critical thought, innovative research, free discussion, courageous inquiry and social change. We embrace the particular challenges facing the diverse communities, including the Indigenous communities, of our region. We foster an intellectual environment in which diversity is reflected and celebrated. We interpret our pasts and help to shape the futures of Saskatchewan and beyond.

9.1.3 EDUCATIONAL POLICY

The members of the Faculty of Arts believe in a University whose purpose is the preservation, transmission, interpretation, and enhancement of the cultural heritage of humans, and the acquisition and expansion of new knowledge and understanding.

They seek to fulfill this purpose by interpreting the past, examining and clarifying contemporary thinking, and anticipating the possibilities of the future. Their efforts should be sustained by a sensitivity to change, and an enthusiasm for investigation and creativity.

The Faculty derives its strength from a unity of purpose combined with a diversity of outlook which requires it to examine every facet of life and uphold the higher human values implicit in the arts, the humanities, and the sciences.

The Faculty will serve the needs of society but, in so doing, it will also be societys critic, encouraging independent thinking, free discussion, and the pursuit of truth.

The Faculty is jealous of its freedom, which it will exercise without fear or favour, promoting in its members and students the spirit of courageous enquiry.

The Faculty recognizes that the constitution and function of the University itself should be open to re-examination by the academic community as a whole. The Faculty maintains that to serve society best, the University must be self-determining in academic matters.

The Faculty of Arts contains 16 departments: Anthropology, Economics, English, French, Geography, History, Indian Communication Arts*, Indian Languages, Literatures & Linguistics*, Indigenous Studies*, International Languages, Justice Studies, Philosophy & Classics, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology & Social Studies; eight programs: Arts and Culture, Canadian Plains Studies, Environmental Studies, Health Studies, International Studies, Police Studies, Prairie Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies; and one school: Journalism.
