Name of Engagement

Temple University Partners on 8KQ

Description

The general education program at Temple University requires a two-course Intellectual Heritage sequence, “The Good Life” and “The Common Good.” Most of the 5500+ incoming students take both courses. Faculty and program reviews have suggested that these courses, due to their normative orientation, could use a more explicit component in ethics. On January 26-28, Bill Hawk served as an external reviewer talking with faculty about the 8KQ strategy, which was positively received.
