A community dedicated to liberal education: A tutor panel on the Statement of the St. John’s College Program of Instruction

 

The Statement of the Program is the most comprehensive mission statement and (with the Polity) one of two foundational documents of St. John’s College. It offers a general description and rationale for our undergraduate and two graduate programs. It has existed in some form since the founding of “the new program” in 1937 and has been revised and published continually since. It contains many of the most serious, and therefore most debatable, claims made on behalf of this education. No one of us would subscribe to everything said in it, as written, but many of us learn and take inspiration from it and many graduates of the college say that it was reading the Statement that inspired them to consider and attend the college. After several years of existing only digitally, we have republished printed copies this year, which are available to the full community. Tutors Judith Adam, Sarah Davis, Eric Poppele, Aparna Ravilochan, Nick Starr, and Walter Sterling will offer remarks on the Statement. Then a question period and conversation will be open to all. Please join us!
