“The Human Being Project: Cultivating Self-Awareness Through Liberal Education” 

How does education make you a better human being? We posed this question to our students. Over 250 responded, posting their answers on a prominent wall as part of a public writing initiative called The Human Being Project. Throughout the term, the students explored the impact of a liberal education in making a meaningful life. Our workshop will recreate the project, asking participants to share their own responses to the question. After the presenters describe how we used the project as a springboard for assignments, participants have time to brainstorm how to adapt the project for their own campuses.
