Planning for America's Future: Educating for Democracy
Pasquerella, Lynn
Liberal Education, v104 n1 Win 2018
The Association of American Colleges and Universities' (AAC&U's) new five-year strategic plan for 2018-22, "We ASPIRE: Advancing Student Performance through Integration, Research, and Excellence," was officially launched at the association's 2018 annual meeting in Washington, DC, at the end of January. Reaffirming a dedication to AAC&U's mission of advancing the vitality and public standing of liberal education by making quality and equity the foundations for excellence in undergraduate education, "We ASPIRE" reclaims higher education's civic mission of educating for democracy. In the process, it acknowledges that preparing students for work, citizenship, and life in local, national, and global contexts requires connecting the education we offer students to broader societal issues in ways that inspire them to lead change in a society still plagued by profound inequities. In this article, the author discusses how the AAC&U's is planning for the America's future with "We ASPIRE."
