Thursday, November 1, 3:00 – 4:30pm
Speakers: Augustana College, Benedictine College
Some of history’s greatest thinkers — innovators such as Leonardo da Vinci and Steve Jobs — overwhelmingly agree: if graduates of STEM and business-related fields are going to lead the world in innovation, their education cannot be divorced from the liberal arts. In order to be successful in our ever-changing world, we need to adapt, to think critically, to collaborate with those from all over the world, and to communicate well. These are the “soft skills” that come with a liberal arts education. As Steve Jobs once said, “It’s technology married with the liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.” Please join Anne (Benedictine College) and Wade (Augustana University) for this informational session on higher education in the US. We look forward to connecting with you!
