Citizenship in the American and Global Polity

Posted by Association of American Colleges and Universities on November 14, 2016

We are pleased to announce the Wye Faculty Seminar on “Citizenship in the American and Global Polity,” to be held in the summer of 2017.

The Wye Faculty Seminar—to be held July 16–21, 2017—is one of the premier faculty development programs in the country. The seminar seeks to address what we believe is a central need of faculty members—to exchange ideas with colleagues from other disciplines and other institutions committed to liberal education, and to probe ideas and values that are foundational to liberal learning in a free society.

Modeled in the tradition of the Aspen Institute Executive Seminars, the Wye Faculty Seminar combines three essential goals: to gather a diverse group of thoughtful individuals in intellectually rigorous discussions; to explore great literature stretching from ancient to contemporary time; and to translate ideas into action suitable to the challenges of our age. The Wye Faculty Seminar is offered to selected faculty members who have the honor of being nominated by their presidents and deans for their distinctive contributions to the quality of liberal education. The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2017.

The Wye Faculty Seminar combines vigorous intellectual exchange with time to read, reflect, exercise, and socialize on the beautiful Aspen Wye River campus in Queenstown, Maryland. The seminar is supported jointly by AAC&U and the Aspen Institute.
