A Century of Liberal Arts Symposium: Celebrating Integrative Learning 

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

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 which 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.
