Vice President of the University and Dean of Academic Affairs Grant Cornwell '79 is among the speakers at a symposium of the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) called "Recentering: Science and Global Learning in the Undergraduate Curriculum."

The symposium takes place just prior to the annual meeting of the AACU, January 25-28 in Washington, DC.

The conference program states, "One of the primary goals of today's liberal education is to produce global thinkers -- students who reach beyond the classroom to apply their developing analytical skills and ethical judgment to concrete problems in the world around them. AAC&U's Shared Futures Initiative encourages the development of global learning curricula in which students are engaged with questions arising from some of the most pressing trends of our time: 'What does it mean to be a citizen in the evolving global context?' And 'How should one act in the face of large unsolved global problems?'"

Symposium speakers, in addition to Cornwell, are Project Kaleidoscope Director Jeanne Narum; Columbia University Professor of Biological Sciences Darcy Kelley; and University of Maryland Professor of Cell Biology Robert Yuan. Keynote speaker is James Gentile, president of Research Corporation.
