General Education Conference

General Education is a journey that shapes and enriches students' intellectual growth through the study of a wide range of subjects. The habits of mind and heart developed in this journey cultivate a critical and creative intellectual capacity that students employ during and long after college, in the pursuit and the fulfillment of meaningful lives in their communities and the world. 'Gen Ed' is a journey of expression in many artistic, oral and written forms and thrives on the debates of the most difficult questions about human experience to prepare students to face life challenges.
