Please join us for an in-depth presentation and discussion about the recent report, What Does 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.
