150th Anniversary Magazine
To cap a year-long celebration, the University of Minnesota’s College of Liberal Arts (CLA) published a magazine for its alumni and friends. CLA students ask big questions encompassing academic disciplines and endeavors that span the human condition. The magazine highlights the interdisciplinary nature of living and learning, while pointing toward the next 150 years.

By preparing students to think independently, work collaboratively, and question constantly, CLA is shattering expectations for what the liberal arts can be. Whether tackling climate change, economic inequality, race relations, or other pressing issues, CLA graduates are asking the questions that move us forward. The magazine enhances understanding and appreciation of this work by presenting stories in new and unexpected ways.
