The Liberal Arts Collaborative Events


Job Skills Mural Event 2.0

In 2020, the campus community created the "Be the Missing Piece" murals, ten (10) puzzle pieces that depict the essential skills students gain by studying the arts, humanities, and sciences. The World Economic Forum identified these skills as their Top Ten Job Skills for 2020.  More information about those skills and murals can be found here.

During the 2021-22 academic year, the Arts and Sciences Collaborative is creating four (4) additional murals to highlight new skills from the World Economic Forum's 2025 list in its Future of Jobs Report.  The additional skills are:

  • Active learning and learning strategies
  • Technology use, monitoring, and control
  • Technology design and programming
  • Resilience, stress tolerance, and flexibility

Students are invited to submit designs for these new murals. Entry details are below.
