College of Applied Sciences & Arts
1 vision. 24 hours.

The College of Applied Sciences and Arts, since its inception in 1950 as the Vocational Technical Institute, has undergone continuous change to address the workforce needs in the southern Illinois region, the state and the nation as well as the University’s mission as it evolved from a teacher’s college to a major Carnegie I research institution. 

The College presently includes four schools: Allied Health, Architecture, Information Systems & Applied Technologies, and Transportation. The College prides itself on efforts that are made to inspire and cultivate vision through personal involvement of students with faculty and staff toward achieving technical expertise for success in a diverse and changing society.  Faculty and staff are dedicated and committed to addressing the academic needs of students seeking opportunities to acquire high level skills in specific technical areas that will prepare them for the global workforce.  

Your contribution is an investment in our students’ success.  We are thankful for your generosity.
