St. Kate's Integrated Learning Series Lectures
Integrated Learning at St. Catherine University is a multidimensional expression of an active Liberal Arts pedagogy. Located at the intersection of creative energy and critical reflection, the Integrated Learning Series is one way we partner academics with activism, the paper with the performance, and the campus with the community. It is the array of courses, activities, speakers, events, performances and exhibitions that coalesce into our ways of knowing. The Integrated Learning Series is the web that binds our learning experiences together and the narratives that connect our collective community.
