READY OR NOT
Global Challenges, College Learning, and America’s Promise
January 21-24, 2009
Thank you for your interest in AAC&U's 2009 Annual Meeting.
Our 2010 Annual Meeting will be held January 20-23 in Washington, DC.
AAC&U’s Annual Meetings provide opportunities for participants to examine the relationship between college learning and society. In recent years, we have collectively insisted that attention to the tradition, language, and practice of liberal education is critical if we hope to meet the many challenges of the world today. Our failure to fully engage our publics with the kinds of learning best suited to our current needs persists even as the creative energies, widespread innovations, and intentional efforts of campuses across the nation are signaling resurgence in the vitality and relevance of liberal education.
Are we ready to exercise the leadership higher education and American society needs? Are our students ready to learn? How can we boost their readiness? Is society ready to make difficult choices about educational priorities? Are our institutions ready to face the societal and economic changes at hand?
Are we ready to fulfill America’s promise—or not?
