College and Beyond II:
Liberal Arts and Life Colloquium Series


We're continuing our series this fall with two more seminars focused on “Measuring the Liberal Arts." The seminars 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. Join us for the second seminar on Friday, October 23.

Stay in touch with the series and continue the conversation via social using #collegeandbeyondii. Visit our Past Events page for more information on previous events and live recordings.
