Welcome to Stockton University's School of Arts & Humanities
The arts and humanities are flourishing at Stockton, which is good news for students, parents, and the communities in which they live and work. The arts and humanities are not only the heart and soul of the liberal arts, but they provide the skills--innovation, critical thinking, oral and written communication, and complex-problem solving—that employers have identified as most crucial to success in life after college. The artists and scholars who make up the faculty of the School of Arts and Humanities demonstrate their mastery of these skills through their own increasingly prominent scholarly and creative work and through their teaching. The faculty’s ongoing commitment to pedagogical innovation gives students exciting opportunities to apply what they have learned through exhibitions, performance, presentation, research, internships, and travel, many examples of which are detailed in these webpages. We welcome you to the School of Arts and Humanities, where students have the best of both worlds: they study what they love and get the skills they need.
Lisa Honaker, Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities, Stockton University (NJ)
Named dean of the School of Arts and Humanities (ARHU) in 2014, Lisa Honaker (Ph.D., Rutgers University) joined the Stockton faculty in 1995 as a professor in the Literature program. Over the years, she has taught a variety of courses in Victorian through contemporary British literature, as well as literary research methods, serial narrative, environmental literature, popular culture, and rhetoric and writing. Honaker has also been involved in civic engagement initiatives at Stockton since 2003, including the Odyssey Project, a collaborative initiative with the New York Times and area high schools, Ordinary Lives of Engagement, an AAC&U grant-funded project that brought local citizen-activists to campus, and the Political Engagement Project (PEP), an American Democracy Project initiative that seeks to promote a culture of civic and political engagement at colleges and in their surrounding communities. Her shift to an administrative role has allowed Honaker to serve both college and community constituencies. She stands committed to helping ARHU faculty and students implement and promote their work and is committed as well to promoting the value of the arts and humanities to potential and current Stockton students, its graduates, their families and employers, and the communities of which they are a part.
