Meet the Dean: Dr. Julia Johnson

Welcome and thank you for exploring a future with us. In CHABSS, we are proud of the diversity that is inherent to a Liberal Arts education – diversity of our faculty, staff and students, our approach to teaching, our ways of thinking and of courses offered.

Grounded in the scholarly and creative activity of our faculty, the College integrates diverse academic disciplines, research fields, creative arts, and interdisciplinary programs, offering students multiple pathways to explore ideas, ideals, visions and values. We prepare students to become professionals whose broad knowledge base enhances their ability to explore and strive for their intellectual potential, to think creatively to solve complex problems, to understand the world around them and their impact on it.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to assisting you in achieving your goals and dreams. As you study in CHABSS, I encourage you to open your mind to new ideas, new people, and new ways of thinking and being. Your college years are about you enhancing you. We encourage you to actively embrace the opportunities and knowledge you will encounter inside and outside the classroom. We are glad you have selected CSUSM as your university, and we look forward to supporting you on your educational journey and in celebrating your achievements. ~ Julia Johnson
