The future of the liberal arts: A global conversation
The future of the liberal arts: A global conversation is the latest in Universities Canada’s ongoing work as a convenor of dialogues on topics of importance to Canadians.
Organized in partnership with the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the two-day workshop brought together leaders from 40 Canadian universities and external stakeholders in Montreal in March 2016 to discuss the future of the liberal arts for the benefit of Canadians.
Presenters included higher education leaders from the United States, Asia and across Canada. The sharing of ideas and promising practices touched on topics from employer demand to re-envisioning the academy.
