Seven Liberal Outcomes of Professional Study.
Stark, Joan S.
A group of faculty members and accrediting representatives was assembled to explore ways to better integrate liberal and professional study during the undergraduate years. The group based its discussions on educational outcomes previously identified by the project directors as important for all college-educated professionals. The project involved faculty in eight professional fields: architecture, business administration, education, engineering, journalism, nursing, pharmacy, and social work. The dialogue and dissemination activities were extremely successful in stimulating national interest about integrating liberal and professional study. The project resulted in distribution of: (1) 10,000 copies of a summary report; and (2) a self-study guide for campus use in stimulating conversation about integration of liberal and professional study, entitled "PLUSS: Professional/Liberal Undergraduate Self-Study." Appendices contain a copy of the summary report, titled "Strengthening the Ties That Bind: Integrating Undergraduate Liberal and Professional Study" (ED 304 951); a copy of the self-study guide "PLUSS"; press releases, advertisements, and letters relating to release of the report; mailing lists; workshop description; an executive summary; and a list of institutions that ordered the summary report or the self-study instrument.
