Spring Reading Group: Excellent Sheep

  • 129 Herring Hall

Following the success of last year's Reading Group, the Center for Teaching Excellence invites you to join us this spring as we read William Deresiewicz's provocative Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life. As one of the most controversial books on higher education of the last decade, Deresiewicz's book has already captured the attention of many faculty and students on campus. And after receiving numerous requests to make this our selection this year, we decided we would take it on in the sprit of critical inquiry that is the hallmark of the liberal tradition Deresiewicz wants us to champion.

Discussions will take place from 12:00-1:00PM in Brockman 101 on alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the semester (February 16th and 25th, as well as March 8th, 17th, 22nd, and 31st). All faculty, staff, and graduate students are welcome.
