Presidents Forum: Liberal Education for the 21st century
Our host, University College Dublin, was first led (as the then Catholic University of Ireland) by Cardinal John Henry Newman, whose book The Idea of a University profoundly influenced the philosophy and design of the traditional undergraduate curriculum, particularly through its advocacy of undergraduate education as general intellectual training.  It’s therefore apt to devote the forum to examining the aims and constituents of an undergraduate education fit for the 21st century, and to use Newman’s ideas as a framework for the discussion.
