Union College is proud to sponsor the
Symposium on Engineering and Liberal Education
White text here.
The first Engineering and Liberal Education Symposium was held at Union College in 2008 and was made possible by a Presidential Discretionary Award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In his keynote address at the symposium (which can be found here), President Ainley called for a “balanced education” for all students. This initiated a conversation that has continued over the years since on the role of engineering at a liberal arts college and liberal arts in an engineering education. President Ainley has remained a steadfast supporter of the symposium and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the symposium this year.
In 2011, Union College completed the Peter Irving Wold Center which is a center of interdisciplinary studies. It forms a bridge between the science and engineering center and the humanities and social sciences buildings on campus. This building is the ideal location for the Engineering and Liberal Education Symposium which focuses on the integration of liberal arts and engineering.
