AAC&U 2017 General Comments – Anne Harris
The overall theme of this year’s AAC&U meeting was “Building Public Trust in the Promise of Liberal Education and Inclusive Excellence” and allowed participants to engage in the crucial issues surrounding liberal arts in the public sphere. Pragmatism and agility, speaking outside of our own idiom, and connecting education to demographic changes in the United States within a shifting global society were at the forefront.
