The School of Integrative Studies (SIS, formerly New Century College) connects students to a world of possibilities beyond the traditional college experience. Housed within the College of Humanities and Social Science, SIS provides students with the courses, engaged scholarship, tools and real-world learning opportunities that will bring their learning to life, and ultimately prepare them to enter the workforce. The generosity of our alumni and friends provides opportunities for students, support for SIS's programs, and helps to ensure the continued growth and success of our college.
