Between Pandemic and Protest: Exploring the Future of Liberal Arts in Higher Education

October 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

COVID-19 has been apocalyptic for higher education, presenting a cliff made still taller by a powerful protest movement. Both events have intensified pressures long squeezing the survival of the liberal arts as a viable educational model, highlighting both the urgency and the elusiveness of moral formation in a twenty-first century education. How might those invested in preserving the liberal arts proceed? Might this year in all its drama present a tipping point for good?

On Monday, October 5 at 7:00 p.m. ET, join us for a roundtable conversation on the enduring value of the liberal arts as we consider our society beyond 2020.
