Liberal education has played a fundamental role in providing an intellectual, moral and cultural foundation for American higher education. The values of liberal education are enduring, but its practice have changed over time. In 2007, the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) redefined liberal education as a set of Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) and claimed achieving the ELOs should be the goal of 21st century college learning. This paper examines to what extent these ELOs are endorsed by faculty members across academic disciplines, with different teaching experience, by type of institutional control, and among the accreditation regions. Data from the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) were used with permission from the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research.
