This colloquium will consider how those engaged in liberal arts education should respond to global challenges including racism, inequality, public health, and climate change. How should institutional leaders, individual course instructors, and students direct their energies in this time? What needs to change about who receives a liberal arts education and where they get it, as well as its nature and content? What are the future roles of residential, remote, and life-long learning in our conception of liberal arts education?
