Results for "Thomas Jefferson Center for the Study of Core Texts and Ideas"

The Jefferson Center is unique among the University of Texas at Austin’s myriad departments and centers. Their focus is not an academic discipline, a region, a time period, or any specialized body of knowledge in which they train graduate students and undergraduate majors; nor is it applied knowledge aimed at some particular vocation. Their mission is rather to counter the modern university’s drift towards fragmentation and specialization by creating a locus of sustained dialogue about questions of enduring significance and providing new ways for undergraduates to integrate their studies.
