Restructuring of the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences (CLAHS) and the College of Architecture and Urban Studies (CAUS) was approved by the State Council of Higher Education in Virginia effective July 1. As a result, CAUS was renamed the College of Architecture, Arts, and Design, and the School of Performing Arts (SOPA) has moved to that college. Joining CLAHS is the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA); additional information about SPIA and its transition to CLAHS can be found here. Accomplishments of continuing SOPA colleagues have been included in this issue of Academic News.
