Number 26, Spring 2017
Laura Kicklighter, Chair
The Agora annually presents writings by Lynchburg College students and faculty and includes essays written by students from other institutions that are members of the Association of Core Texts and Courses (ACTC). Lynchburg College contributors participate in the Lynchburg College Symposium Readings (LCSR) program, which integrates ideas from classical selections with contemporary ideas and issues. LCSR classes encourage students to think deeply about current issues and to become sensitive to the interdisciplinary influence of classical ideas. Contributors from other ACTC colleges and universities participate in similar "great books" programs.
