Grant Summary

$200,000 over 30 months for a program to develop faculty leadership for liberal education across nine private liberal arts institutions in Massachusetts and New York. Under the leadership of AAC&U senior staff, three-person campus teams will define and implement campus-based projects to develop faculty capacity to oversee liberal education on their campus, with an emphasis on training faculty to understand and advance liberal education as an integrative process that brings together a range of related educational experiences ("cornerstone to capstone"), rather than solely in terms of departmental or program-based curricula. The institutions participating are Babson College, Clark University, Mount Holyoke College, Wellesley College, Wheaton College (MA), Bard College, Colgate University, Skidmore College and Wagner College.
