While university administrators have many ways to assess a program’s or department’s effectiveness, student retention is one of the more controversial measures.  Particularly, retention often seems inherently at odds with our roles as college professors since—fairly or not—issues of retention are conflated with concerns over grade inflation and academic rigor.  Yet, as studies show, universities lose students over the first two years of college for a variety of reasons: financial, the absence of strong academic mentoring and peer relationships, the strains of commuting, as well as family pressures and responsibilities that threaten to derail academic pursuits.

The Villanova Center for Liberal Education (VCLE) at Villanova University is sponsoring a one-day conference on W. E. B. DuBois and Liberal Education. We have chosen to celebrate the work of W. E. B. DuBois because he is the exemplary interdisciplinary, engaged scholar, not merely a practitioner of the liberal arts but also an ardent defender of them. His writings encompassed and bridged philosophy, sociology, literature, political science, history, music, economics, Africana Studies, and cultural studies. He was also a journalist, editor, organizer, and political activist. 2018 is the 150th anniversary of his birth.
