At Lindsey Wilson College
A Gathering of
Dr. Tip H. Shanklin, Facilitator
Associate Professor of English
Lindsey Wilson College
The Lyceum at Lindsey Wilson College provides a special
opportunity for students to enhance their undergraduate experience
through reflection and discussion of significant and intriguing
topics and questions that perhaps they have not encountered in
their classes. The Lyceum meets three times both in the fall and
spring semesters.* The initial discussion meeting each semester
(September and February) will be focused and guided. Thereafter,
the Lyceum students themselves will have the opportunity to
formulate discussion and reflection topics and ideas for the two
successive semester gatherings. Some of the possible topics and
questions may include: Has democratization and homogeneity enhanced
or damaged American culture and education? What qualities make for
an enduring work of art? Are liberty and liberal arts things of the
past? What is the difference between the Classical virtues and
postmodern values? Is there a "human" nature?
The Lyceum facilitator is Dr. Tip H. Shanklin, Associate
Professor of English, who has twenty years of college teaching
experience in literature and the humanities. Dr. Shanklin joined
the Lindsey Wilson College faculty in 1998 and received the Teacher
of the Year award from the LWC Student Government Association for
the 2001-2002 academic year.
*Discussions will be scheduled on the first Wednesday in
September, October, and November in the fall semester; February,
March, and April in the spring semester. Space is limited to eight
to ten students who are in their sophomore, junior, or senior year.
