Liberal Learning Symposium

With the generous support of the Chancellor, University College hosted a symposium on Liberal Learning for Global Citizens. The symposium began a two-year campus-wide process to assess and revise the University College Core Curriculum.

The symposium was an opportunity
  • to learn about current trends and best practices in general education and
  • to contribute your expertise to the process of defining goals and outcomes for general education at FSU.

The symposium lasted a half day. It was repeated several times between October 26 and November 19, 2005, to accommodate different schedules.
