Over the past year, students have protested systemic social justice issues ranging from racial inequities, renewed calls for freedom of expression, and calls for divestment of institutional funds. As campuses respond to voices of students, the need for liberal education becomes clearer, and faculty play a key role on campus as students examine their beliefs and question institutional policies and practices. This Symposium will examine how faculty have been and could be empowered to address these complex issues.   Visit the website to learn more: http://www.aacu.org/meetings/annualmeeting/AM17/symposium San Francisco, California San Francisco, California noreply@air.org America/New_York public
