08 May The Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults 70th Anniversary Celebration



Inspired by the past, focused on the future: The Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults 70th Anniversary

On November 17th, the Graham School celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Basic Program of Liberal Education for Adults at the University of Chicago’s Gleacher Center. Over 200 students and alumni, past and present—some in their fourth decade of study with the program—were present to mark this important date in the history of a program heralded throughout the evening for its singular commitment to the education of adults.

As the cornerstone to the evening’s program, Basic Program Instructor Adam Rose presented an impassioned survey of the program’s unique history and place in the educational life of the University of Chicago and the United States more broadly. Titled “Only in Chicago, Only at the University of Chicago: The Basic Program at 70,” he traced the Basic Program’s origins to the 1930s, when University of Chicago President Robert Maynard Hutchins and his colleague Mortimer Adler pioneered the Great Books program at the University, a course of study founded on rigorous text-based analyses of the founding principles of the Western tradition.

    I wish Adam had a teleprompter, or something other than just reading from his paper. Also, I think "Great Books" programs would be more widespread if they focused purely on literature, without the religious baggage like the Old Testament in the canon. Make the "Western Canon" a "Human Canon," and more people will seek it out 🙂
