Liberal Learning and the Arts of Connection for the New Academy

Explores goals for liberal learning in a diverse democracy and argues that the liberal arts of the future will include ways of relating and learning across difference. Explains that the "new academy" growing up within the old comprises new ways of thinking, reconfiguration of disciplines, new modes of teaching and assessment, and new forms of scholarship -- all developed in order to move beyond historically inequitable divisions. Written for faculty members and curriculum committees, this report offers an important new vision for liberal education at the turn of the century. Should be used in connection with American Pluralism and the College Curriculum.
