Higher Learning for Citizenship. Twenty-Eighth Annual Earl V. Pullias Lecture Series in Higher Education. Fall 2005
Hurtado, Sylvia
Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis, University of Southern California
The Pullias Lecture provided an excellent and important opportunity to articulate the vision related to the author's research and work with campuses across the country. She chose the title of the lecture, "Higher Learning for Citizenship," because of her concern about the role that higher education plays in the society. Specifically, how do educators prepare citizens for a different society than the past--a vision of the society educators aspire to become? The author believes that as a nation, they have yet to deal effectively with the persistent and growing social, racial, and economic gaps in this country and higher learning for citizenship should encompass greater attention to these issues as the students are likely to encounter the need for decisions in the workplace and social circumstances that involve these social problems. It is her purposeful intention to call for an enactment of higher education's transformative possibilities and for all to become intentional educators. Appended are: (1) About the Author; (2) Previous Pullias Lectures; and (3) About CHEPA. (Contains 2 figures.)
