We regard history as an ever-evolving discipline based on the rigorous collection and critical analysis of evidence to explore the diversity of human experiences over time.  As historians, we narrate the past by interpreting our sources, advancing informed perspectives on past social, political, and cultural realities, while also providing essential contextual knowledge for the present.  By teaching students how to interrogate the historical record, evaluate arguments based on the strength of the evidence, and communicate complex ideas effectively, we prepare students to become discerning, productive, and knowledgeable participants in a global society.
