Envisioning the Achievement of America’s Promise
Tuesday, October 27
11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in Reeve Ballroom, 227 BC
Dr. Alma Clayton-Pedersen, Senior Scholar at AAC&U and CEO of Emeritus Consulting Group
The Wisconsin Idea advocates for research that addresses real-world challenges and contributes to the public good in the process. Dr. Alma Clayton-Pedersen will discuss the importance of leveraging these American values of inclusion and equity in the interest of student learning and civic engagement. Critical national dialogues on racial disparities and injustices are taking place across the country. These provide the backdrop for her exploration of the power of liberal education to educate students for social responsibility and engagement with the complexities of our diverse nation and interdependent world.
The Global Relevance and Reach of the Wisconsin Idea

Dr. Don Hones, College of Education and Human Services
Dr. Christie Launius, College of Letters and Science

In this luncheon session, three UW Oshkosh instructors will invite you to consider many different ways that the Wisconsin Idea remains not only pertinent but urgent in terms of how our students engage their studies, their society and the world. Together with their students, faculty from the College of Letters and Science, the College of Nursing and the College of Education and Human Services will engage participants in critical questions about global learning and understanding both at UW Oshkosh and abroad. By sharing practical pedagogies for expanding global perspectives and reflecting on transnational learning experiences, the panelists will encourage us to press the traditional boundaries of the Wisconsin Idea to reveal its global reach.
