Making the Case for Liberal Education (Concluding Plenary Session)

College and Beyond II: Liberal Arts and Life Colloquium Series

Join us this winter term for the continuation of our public colloquium series exploring the values, dimensions, and outcomes of liberal arts education, and how they might be measured. In virtual panel discussions and seminars focused on measuring the liberal arts, academic leaders, researchers, faculty members, and national experts will gather to consider issues long central to liberal arts education, as well as its status now and in the future.

A panel of academic leaders will consider how a focus on the lives students lead beyond college, on the outcomes of liberal arts education, can make the case for it. What outcomes are most pertinent, and most exciting? Which outcomes should be measured, and then marshalled? Panelists will also address what they most want to know about liberal education, and how the College and Beyond II project can help to explore those questions.
