Join us this winter term for the continuation of our public colloquium series exploring the values, dimensions, and outcomes of liberal arts education, and how they might be measured. In virtual panel discussions and seminars focused on measuring the liberal arts, academic leaders, researchers, faculty members, and national experts will gather to consider issues long central to liberal arts education, as well as its status now and in the future.

College and Beyond II: Outcomes of a Liberal Arts Education is a data collection and research initiative developing a set of measures and methods for representing liberal arts education and assessing its value. The project considers how administrative data regularly collected by institutions can be used to better characterize the liberal arts qualities of each student’s educational experience, and aims to quantify the connections between these qualities and important life outcomes. The research team will present the project’s goals and design, as well as data explorations highlighting new measures of the richness of the liberal arts experience and outcomes derived from writing samples of graduates.
