New Liberal Education for the Age of Technology

Higher education in the liberal arts and higher education in technology developed independently and have remained distinct entities. But they are linked in a symbiotic relationship that grows stronger as technology becomes a primal force in the determination of human destiny.

Recognizing the challenges young people face today as they plan their educational futures in this new environment, WPI has established an annual symposium series called "The New Liberal Education for the Age of Technology."

The primary audience for this series is the leadership at independent and public schools-the people who play a critical role in influencing student's futures. For more information, please contact Lance Schachterle, WPI's assistant provost for academic affairs, at 508-831-5514 or
