Classroom

A Century of Liberal Arts Symposium

 

Call for Presentations

Integrative learning transcends academic boundaries and encourages students to address real-world problems, synthesize multiple areas of knowledge, and consider issues from a variety of perspectives. Promoting an integrative learning approach brings the student learning experience into a coherent whole that prepares them for their personal, professional, and civic life - the core aim of a liberal arts education.

AUC’s Liberal Arts Symposium will feature presentations that highlight research, works-in-progress, teaching strategies and tools which advance the priorities of an integrative liberal learning curriculum and offer transferable impact across the disciplines.
