Liberal Education for an Inventive America

Fostering Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship

At its best, a contemporary liberal education helps form students as creative, innovative, entrepreneurial thinkers who are prepared to face the challenges of participation in a global economy and citizenship in a diverse democracy. This issue provides models for how to foster this essential learning outcome. Also included are articles on the partnership between AAC&U and the Ford Foundation, the need to support the integrative learning of faculty members, ways to promote global learning across a campus, and the relationship between the rise of the for-profit university and the increasing reliance on adjuncts.
