Abstract

For centuries, universities have defined “wholeness” in students as the sum of disparate parts: educate the mind, body, and spirit, Ignatius argued, and we’ve educated the “whole student.” But what if that’s not enough? What if, having gone through a college curriculum that touches on all these things, students still leave college lacking a sense of who they are, of what they’re capable of, of their ability to move into a messed up world and be part of a deliberative solution? This keynote will explore these and related questions, offering a few initial thoughts on how we—faculty, students, administrators—may want to move forward.
