About the Knapp Chair of Liberal Arts
The Knapp Chair of Liberal Arts was established in 1995. Three distinguished scholars are appointed annually by the dean from three divisional areas: arts and humanities, natural sciences and mathematics, and social sciences. The Knapp chairs contribute to the vitality and centrality of liberal arts in the College by teaching and interacting with students, collaborating with faculty, and presenting public lectures that engage our campus community in confronting humanity’s urgent challenges.
