    Liberal education forum Nov. 10

    What are the virtues that a liberal education endeavors to cultivate and transmit? What kind of person do educators seek as the product of liberal education? These questions and more will be addressed by University faculty members during "The Ultimate Concerns of Liberal Education," a forum co-sponsored by the University Campus Ministers and the Dean of the College. The forum will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10, in the library of Ida Noyes Hall.

    The two-part program, moderated by Peter Vandervoort, Professor in Astronomy and Master of the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division, will include two panels of speakers. The first panel will feature Sidney Nagel, Professor in Physics; David Oxtoby, Professor in Chemistry; and Theodore Steck, Professor in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. The second panel will feature Martha McClintock, Professor in Psychology; Robert Perlman, Professor in Pediatrics and Master of the Biological Sciences Collegiate Division; and Paul Sally, Professor in Mathematics.

    Each of the two parts will consist of about 20 minutes of presentations, followed by open discussion.
