  Liberal Arts Education in the United States,History, Rhetoric, and Reality

Peter A. J. Englert 教授 (夏威夷大学前校长)

   Based on a general history, using critical analysis, the development of liberal education in the American colonial colleges and their transformation into a key component of contemporary United States higher education curricula is evaluated. Case studies of general and liberal education undergraduate curricula and their application within and across higher education institutions and system components are presented. They illuminate the tension between projected and actual function of liberal education.

  Professor Peter A. J. Englert is a scientist who has held research, faculty and leadership positions at the University of Cologne, Germany, UC San Diego and San Jose State University, California, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is currently conducting and managing active programs in social sciences.  Within the Center for Chinese Studies (CCS) his focus is on higher education systems within China and the Asia-Pacific as well as higher education of indigenous peoples and nationalities in China, New Zealand, Canada, and Hawaii. He also is interested in environmental and economic relevance of higher education efforts with a focus on Asia. He is Guest Professor at several Chinese Universities, and was a Scholar in Residence at the Stout Research Center, Victoria University of Wellington. Professor Englert contributes to both national and international higher education governance and policy development as a member of IAUP and other national and international Higher Education Associations.
