Explore Learning Community 

A first-year Learning Community 

The EXPLORE Learning Community will explore the possibilities of the liberal arts in the 21st Century. While much has been made of the importance of STEM fields in today’s technological world, so too have the opportunities and challenges of the modern age led many to renew our commitment to the liberal arts: to teaching and learning those skills necessary to be informed, active participants in civic life. Aimed specifically at students in programs/departments housed in COLA, this community will investigate the purpose, histories, philosophies, and vocational possibilities associated with the disciplines traditionally associated with the liberal arts.
