Faculty on the Road




Faculty on the Road

The Edith Ingalls Vignos '45 Faculty on the Road Program brings together alumni and faculty to recreate a Sarah Lawrence seminar. Members of our renowned faculty take their academic passions to cities across the country and ask you to come prepared to discuss questions pertinent to their topics. It's not quite the same as sitting around a table in Dudley Lawrence Living Room, but you will find the same challenging give-and-take that marked your Sarah Lawrence experience.

The Sarah Lawrence Faculty on the Road Program was created through the generosity of Edith Ingalls Vignos ’45 and endowed by her family's foundation. These gifts were made to ensure continued connection between the College's faculty and alumni.

The Spring 2018 Faculty on the Road program explores the inaugural theme Democracy and Education, engaging critical issues facing the US and other societies around the world: What are the essential elements of a democracy? Who gets to be a citizen and why? How do we learn to speak to one another across deep ideological divides? How do we ensure broad access to learning that promotes individual and societal well-being in the context of rapid, often unpredictable change? And what is the role that education—and higher education, in particular—must play? To learn more about the Democracy and Education theme, launched in conjunction with the inauguration of Cristle Collins Judd as Sarah Lawrence's 11th president, please visit www.sarahlawrence.edu/democracy.
