The fall 2019 CA Magazine invites you to engage with the choices that the Mission Review Task Force made in updating CA’s mission statement, and to explore some of the ways in which purposeful collaboration, creative engagement, and active emphasis on challenging and expanding our understanding of ourselves and the world are shaping the next generation of CA graduates to build a more just and sustainable world.
