Please join us for a discussion on what can be done to strengthen general education—as students move into STEM, business, health, and other pre-professional fields—to ensure that college students, whatever their major or background, encounter inspiring works of literature and philosophy and grasp the power of the humanities and its relevance to their professional aspirations.
This workshop will feature Emily Bernard, Julian Lindsay Green & Gold Professor of English at the University of Vermont, on how she teaches Nella Larsen's Passing so it is accessible and engaging to first-year students and non-humanities majors.
The workshop will run from 12:30-1:30 p.m. EST. Foundation staff will remain from 1:30-2:00 p.m. EST to answer questions about the Cornerstone: Learning for Living initiative co-sponsored by the Teagle Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. This workshop is free and open to all faculty members.
