Make CLA Voices Heard on U-wide LE Requirements

As the University begins to review and possibly redesign these requirements, it is essential that CLA voices be heard in this review process from the outset. Over 40 CLA faculty and staff participated in the first forum on January 30. Thanks to all who participated.

The second and third forums, as described below, are on Thursday, February 23 and Monday, March 6. 

In addition to participating in these forums, and especially if you are unable to attend, share your thoughts with John by email about the current LE requirements as well as a future desired arrangement, or the principles and factors that should be taken into account in creating that future arrangement.
Our approach in CLA for the past two and a half years has been that we will advocate—not apologize—for the liberal arts, and that we will be on offense and not defense. Participating in these forums is one way to provide our constructive perspectives to the process.

Every day, in a myriad of ways, CLA faculty and staff create an exceptional educational environment that transforms our students’ lives. All of you play a role in making this happen. Thank you.
