Stanford University

June 22-24, 2018
Hosted by the Stanford University Master of Liberal Arts Program

Welcome to program directors, current students and alumni of West Coast GLS programs! The twelfth annual Graduate Liberal Studies Symposium continues the tradition started by Stanford University and Dominican University of California in 2007 of developing our broader academic community through a weekend of intellectual exchange and conversation. This interdisciplinary Symposium provides the opportunity for students and alumni to present papers to an audience of their peers, to participate in lively discussions, and to meet fellow GLS students from other schools.  All students, alumni and faculty from our universities are welcome to attend the Symposium.

Since 2008, the participating programs have expanded to include these West Coast GLS programs, along with Maastricht University in the Netherlands:

Dominican University of California
Maastricht University
Marylhurst University
Mount St. Mary's University
Reed College
San Diego State University
Simon Fraser University
St. John's College, Santa Fe Campus
Stanford University
University of Washington, Tacoma

We look forward to welcoming you to Stanford in June!
