What Does It Mean to be an Educated Person?

This semester, our conversations will center on recent articles about contemporary higher education, teaching and today’s students.  Readings are posted below – they are selected with a broad audience in mind. (Ideally, read them in advance, but if you can’t, come anyway!)

Join your colleagues for brown-bag lunch and discussion, 12:00 pm-1:00pm at IRC 101.
