The liberal arts mission hasn't changed. To teach young people to think critically, with open minds, through a rigorous curriculum. To enable them to apply these skills years after they've left campus. The liberal arts are liberating arts, to quote John Sloan Dickey-equipping students with the smarts and confidence to approach the world with fresh eyes.

What has changed is how we achieve it. Join Dean of Faculty Carol Folt in a candid dialogue on undergraduate education at Dartmouth. In an interactive live webcast December 5, discuss why

  • Undergraduate education has become so participatory at Dartmouth, with students in partnership with leading scholars in their fields.
  • There's an intensity to pursue a "global Dartmouth experience."
  • Learning at the intersection of disciplines is essential in problem-solving and understanding our world.
  • "Intellectual risk taking" is one of the more important lessons Dartmouth can teach.
