The Association for General and Liberal Studies serves as "a forum for professional people concerned with undergraduate general and liberal education in each of the several divisions of the curriculum." At least, that is what the Bylaws indicate. But as I talk to people about the organization several more specific questions keep emerging: " What exactly is AGLS anyway?" "Why should I spend $10 a year to support AGLS?" " What is Interdisciplinary Perspectives?" These questions suggest that the Association has as its first problem - to use the current jargon - a very large "communication gap."
