As discussions about employment, employability, and returns on investment in post-secondary education become increasingly urgent, Huron University College believes it is all the more important to articulate the timeless, and very timely, value of the Liberal Arts model of education.
On Thursday May 3rd, the college is hosting a second Campus-Community Roundtable on the Value of the Liberal Arts. This is a follow-up to a session held in June 2010 that brought together business and not-for-profit leaders in London to consider how the community’s needs and Huron’s capacities might be aligned to ensure that graduates are prepared to take an active and informed role in shaping the society of tomorrow. The session identified a general list of competencies to be pursued. These included abilities in communications, teamwork, understanding of organizational structures, critical thinking, and ethical behaviour. Attendance is already confirmed by several leaders in the financial sector, human resources, marketing and communications, and the not-for-profit sector.
Interested members of the community who wish to register for the event, to be held in the Huron Room from 4p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday 3 May, should contact email@example.com
by Friday 27 April.
