Overview

The Fostering Liberal Arts Knowledge and Connections program aims to build faculty collaboration across disciplines and institutions with the goal of enriching teaching and research for faculties at liberal arts colleges and research universities.

The program seeks to better link the imaginative and interpretive sensibilities of the liberal arts with the disciplinary-focused and rigorous ambitions of specialized social sciences. Through practice-oriented retreats the program promotes the interplay between teaching and research, how we work with students and how we work with colleagues. By crafting pedagogical initiatives the program links faculty at liberal arts colleges with those at research universities and enhances collaboration in both teaching and research.
