New American Colleges gather on campus next month

Representatives from the Associated New American Colleges (ANAC) will convene at Pacific Lutheran University in April for their annual spring meeting.

Scheduled for April 6-8, the conference will explore the philosophical traditions that have produced the estrangement between liberal and professional studies on campuses and explore promising strategies for overcoming that separation.

Featured speakers include Sheldon Rothblatt, professor of history from the University of California-Berkeley, and Faith Gabelnick, president of Pacific University. PLU Provost Paul Menzel is coordinating the PLU campus portion of this large ANAC and American Association of Colleges and Universities event, and will present the welcoming address at the opening reception.

Session topics include "Getting it Right in Preparing Science and Mathematics Teachers," "Integrating the Liberal Arts and Businesses," and "The Role of Accreditation in Integrating Liberal and Professional Studies."

ANAC is a national consortium of 20 mid-size comprehensive colleges and universities that feature strong liberal arts and professional studies programs, of which PLU is an institutional member.
