Please join us for an in-depth presentation and discussion about the recent report,
Bowdoin Teach? How A Contemporary Liberal Arts College Shapes Students.
Dr. Herbert London, Dr. Peter Wood, Dr. KC Johnson, Dr. Michael
Poliakoff, Dr. Susan Shell and Dr. John Fonte will discuss how higher
education in America has transformed from strong intellectual
traditions, a core curriculum, and a commitment to Western Civilization,
to a new focus on race, class, gender, and the environment. Out went
the old style of scholarly generalists as teachers, and in came the new
style of research specialists as faculty members. The new Bowdoin
dedicated itself to the achievement of social justice and to reshaping
America in the image of progressive politics.
