Goals for the Year

Throughout the 2012-13 academic year, Wofford will host a variety of public lectures, symposia, conversation circles, and other in-person and “virtual” initiatives and performances, the goals of which will be:

  • to reeducate ourselves about the history and purpose of the liberal arts in higher education;
  • to reassert the effectiveness of the liberal arts to empower undergraduates for global citizenship;
  • to reclaim and reenvision Wofford’s institutional identity as a 21st century college of the liberal arts and sciences.

Re:Thinking Education seeks the participation of all of the institution’s various constituencies: faculty, students, staff, athletics personnel, trustees, alumni, parents of students, donors, residents of the city of Spartanburg and the counties of Upstate South Carolina, and anyone else with an affiliation to or affinity for the school.
