Webinar: The “Cornerstone” Approach to Reinvigorating the Liberal Arts

February 12, 2020 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
The Teagle Foundation

Learn about what can be done-as students move into STEM, Business, Health, and other pre-professional fields-to ensure that college students, whatever their major, encounter inspiring works of literature and philosophy and grasp the power of liberal learning and its relevance to their professional aspirations.

Hear from faculty leaders at Purdue University on how its innovative “Cornerstone” program has injected energy and excitement into General Education, attracting thousands of students, including large numbers of STEM majors, to engage with humanities faculty and with transformative texts, both classic and contemporary.

Hear from faculty leaders at Columbia University about how a common intellectual experience centered on reading and discussion of transformative texts helps build community among students of diverse backgrounds and fosters civil discourse.

Learn about the Teagle Foundation’s funding opportunity for leaders interested in reinvigorating General Education on your campus.
