Flourishing: Making Higher Education Whole. Reconnecting Liberal Learning with Well-Being

The Next Generation of Liberal Education Reforms

Featured Session
Thursday January 22, 2015 10:45am to 12:15pm

This forum explores a vision and empirical evidence for students’ flourishing as an essential goal of a 21st-century liberal education. The forum will present key findings from the scholarship of flourishing and its relation to quality of life, within and beyond college. Presenters also will examine what the Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP) project has learned over ten years of campus-based work to connect student learning and civic engagement with students’ well-being. BTtoP, an independent partner with AAC&U, is launching a multi-campus initiative to foster campus practices that connect well-being with learning.
