The 2013 FAHE conference will be held at our member institution Malone University in Canton, Ohio, June 20-23. Registration details are here.
Our theme for 2013 is “Holistic Education: To What End?”
- As distinctly Quaker institutions and educators, what are we educating our students for? What does Pendle Hill have to do with Athens?
- In what ways do Quaker testimonies and practices facilitate a holistic approach to education? How might our students imagine higher education as something more than the acquistion of a professional skill set?
- How are Quaker testimonies and practices expressed within the classroom and beyond at our instituions?
- Whether we teach at institutions that are private or public, or are affiliated with Friends or not, how do we challenge and engage students who represent a broad spectrum of intellectual talents…from the academically-disengaged to the academically-focused and gifted?
- What is or can be a distinctively Quaker educational experience, no matter what branch of the Religious Society of Friends one’s institution or an individual might represent? Why might a Quaker education matter to those who are not part of the Friends tradition?
- How do we live and learn together within our campus communities?
