2018 Dialogue: The Powerful Potential of a “Useless” Liberal Arts Education

Thursday, April 12
4:30 pm

Liberal Arts Building - Eck Hall Room 011

Teaching awards will be presented. Reception to follow.

This annual event brings together alumni, faculty, students, scholars and members of the community to discuss and debate timely topics. Past programs have addressed human nature, public health crises, and questions of truth. This year’s program on the value of a liberal arts education is sure to prove equally provocative. In addition to an outstanding panel, we understand President Bodnar will also be making a cameo appearance.
