Third Annual Alliance for Liberal Learning Conference:
Connecting Business and Liberal Learning
March 23–24, 2018 • Chicago, IL

Who we are.

The Alliance for Liberal Learning is an exciting new initiative that brings together North America’s leading institutions and individuals dedicated to advancing liberal education as a lifelong endeavor.

The organizations in the Alliance are leaders in Socratic learning, inquiry- and discussion-based learning, classical education, core text and Great Books programs across the spectrum of elementary, secondary, college, adult continuing education and informal adult learning.

They share a belief in the profound and lasting benefits that a liberal education brings to our educational, civic and personal well-being.

What we do.

The Alliance works to increase public awareness, understanding and appreciation for lifelong liberal education. We provide professional learning and networking opportunities, and we facilitate partnerships and collaborations among Alliance organizations.

Join us at our third annual conference in Chicago in March 2018!
