Join us for College and Beyond II: Liberal Arts and Life, a year-long public colloquium series exploring the values, dimensions, and outcomes of liberal arts education, and how they might be measured. In panel discussions throughout the year, academic leaders, researchers, and national experts will gather to consider issues long central to liberal arts education, as well as its status in the current climate. Seminars focused on “Measuring the Liberal Arts” will feature path-breaking projects seeking to develop and refine measures of undergraduate education, and especially its liberal arts components, and to determine its impact on the present and future lives of students. Stay in touch with the series and continue the conversation via social using #collegeandbeyondii.

We're concluding the fall portion of our series on November 13 with a third seminar focused on “Measuring the Liberal Arts." The seminars feature path-breaking projects seeking to develop and refine measures of undergraduate education, and especially its liberal arts components, and to determine its impact on the present and future lives of students. The colloquium series will resume in Winter 2021, and events will be announced soon on the College and Beyond II: Liberal Arts and Life website.

Colloquium series sponsors: University of Michigan College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA); Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR); College of Engineering; Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy Education Policy Initiative (EPI); School of Education Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education (CSHPE); National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID)
