Liberal Studies Parents Circle

Since its inception in Fall 2006, the Liberal Studies Parents Circle has fostered a sense of community among Liberal Studies parents. Through participation in the Circle, parents have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the unique Liberal Studies curriculum, to interact with faculty, and to share information and ideas with one another as well as with Liberal Studies Dean Fred Schwarzbach.

Meetings are held once a semester on Washington Square at which time Dean Schwarzbach informs members about the state of the program and plans for the future. He encourages everyone to play an active role in group discussion and in reaching out to other parents. Parents' active participation has been tremendously valuable to Dean Schwarzbach and to the program as a whole.

Liberal Studies Parents Circle members are asked to consider a gift in support of the program. Membership gifts go toward funding scholarships and academic initiatives for deserving students.
