Launch of "Student As Scholar" Blog


The "Student As Scholar" blog was formally created on July 25 2008. The Blog is devoted to documenting relevant literature that supports the view that :



"Undergraduate education should adopt the “Student as Scholar” Model throughout the curriculum, where scholar is conceived in terms of an attitude, an intellectual posture, and a frame of mind derived from the best traditions of an engaged liberal arts education. With this framework, not only each research project, but also each course, is viewed as an integrated, and integrating, part of the student experience."
