The first Engineering and Liberal Education Symposium was held at Union College in 2008 and was made possible by a Presidential Discretionary Award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Over the years, this symposium initiated a conversation on the role of engineering at a liberal arts college and liberal arts in an engineering education. President Harris is a steadfast supporter of the symposium and we are looking forward to welcoming you to the symposium this year.
The Peter Irving Wold Center is a center of interdisciplinary studies. It forms a bridge between the science and engineering center and the humanities and social sciences buildings on campus. This building is the ideal location for the Engineering and Liberal Education Symposium which focuses on the integration of liberal arts and engineering.
