Gaede Institute for the Liberal Arts Programs
Conversation on the Liberal Arts
Can the liberal arts address student anxieties and transform the modern "race to success"? Join the conversation, March 21-23, 2019.
Liberal Arts Ambassadors
Too few young people are aware of what a liberal arts education can offer, especially those from underserved backgrounds. The Gaede Institute created the Liberal Arts Ambassadors program to address this critical need.
Lectures and Discussions
The Gaede Institute cosponsors a variety of faculty-organized lecture series: the Pascal Society Lectures, the Erasmus Society Lectures, two annual lectures organized by Westmont's chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi honors society, departmental lectures, and its own Reel Talk film discussion series.
Reel Talk brings together Westmont faculty, staff, and students to discuss important films and contemporary issues. Movie screenings precede discussions facilitated by college faculty and staff.
Trailhead: Seeking God's Call
In an on-campus summer residency and yearlong mentorship, join a community of scholars, pastors, and other professionals in exploring God's call to a meaningful life.
A Conversation on Youth and Vocation
In a changing nation and culture, how can we inspire young people to seek a true vocation—a call from God on their whole lives? Join David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group, for a free half-day conversation about emerging directions in ministry to youth. February 11, 2019, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
