Special Topics conferences are sponsored by the ACTC Liberal Arts Institute at the University of Dallas and interested sponsoring institutions. Conference topics may involve research that ACTC has conducted; such was the case in 2006 at our conference on “Trends in the Liberal Arts Core: Cooperative Integration Between the Humanities and Sciences.” Or, conferences may address particular issues in higher education which affect core text, liberal arts education such as our conferences on Asian Texts and Women in the Core. Watch our Liberal Arts Institute pages for announcements. Institutions which have ideas for such conferences are welcome to contact the Executive Director of ACTC at info@coretexts.org
