This month, as part of their Liberal Education and America's Promise initiative, AAC&U launched liberal.edu nation. In the blog's first post, Debra Humphreys, AAC&U's Vice President for Communications and Public Affairs, said...
This blog will be a platform for discussion about the future of college learning—why the outcomes of a liberal education are so important in today’s world and how those within and outside of higher education understand these outcomes and the idea of a “liberal education.”
We will try to shine a spotlight on what a liberal education is in today’s colleges and universities, but also the ways that the term “liberal education” is still misunderstood—even by many students and their own college and high school teachers.
We will also use this blog to draw attention to important items in the news you may have missed—the good, the bad, the ugly, the funny, the sad—but especially those news items that college administrators and faculty members need to know about in order to ensure that today’s college education provides every student the opportunity to learn what they need to know to thrive in today’s world.
