CLS is excited to be the host college for the 2016 annual conference of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP) in October. AGLSP is an international organization of more than 100 institutional members that share a common interest in graduate-level liberal education primarily serving adult, part-time students.
The conference will be held October 20 – 22 at the Skirvin Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. More than 150 participants are expected to attend from member schools.
This year’s conference focus is Tradition and Transformation, and the sessions will explore the dynamic relationship between these two very important forces in the arts, the humanities, the sciences and the social sciences.
“We’re really looking forward to hosting the upcoming conference and changing some of the traditional stereotypes people may have about Oklahoma,” said CLS Associate Dean and AGLSP President Martha Banz. “CLS is one of the founding members of AGLSP for good reason. We continue to evolve as a college and are constantly pursuing new solutions to provide the best education possible for nontraditional students.”
Founded in 1975, the AGLSP represents a broad cross-section of higher education—from small liberal arts colleges to large, research-oriented universities in the public and private sectors. Visit aglsp.org for more information about the upcoming conference.
Note: The College of Liberal Studies was renamed the College of Professional and Continuing Studies in 2017.
