This Week's Message

Longfellow Liberal Arts is completing its fifth year of operation in partnership with Augustana.  To mark this milestone we recently told the story of Longfellow Liberal Arts at the Conference of National Association of Professional Development Schools.  At the end of one of our presentations, an attendee described Longfellow as being the "utopia of professional development schools."  While this was definitely an overstatement, it was a compliment and high praise for our work to date. We do, indeed, have a lot of things going for us that make us the envy of many other programs.  Come and find out why. 

This Friday's Conversation will provide an overview of what has been accomplished, but we will devote much of our time to discussion of where we wish to go in the future.  Several members of the Augustana Community have been involved at the school.  They represent a variety of disciplines and groups, but we would like to increase campus involvement.  How might you contribute to the education of the students attending Longfellow Liberal Arts?  Dave Knuckey, principal, and the majority of the staff will be joining us for a brainstorming session on how we can grow the partnership to include more points of intersection.  Indeed, with wider involvement we may really become the utopia of such partnerships.  You can make that happen. 

Please help us to grow the Longfellow LA/Augustana Partnership.  I hope to see you on Friday!
