Best Practices in the Liberal Studies Program

The purpose of establishing best practices for instruction in the Liberal Studies Program is to standardize excellence among the many units of the program. Each students experience should be of the highest quality, both intellectually and pragmatically, and the incorporation of best practices in one’s teaching helps to accomplish this goal.
