Carleton was founded in 1866 — by Minnesota pioneers who understood that human knowledge is the real frontier — and has a long tradition of innovative undergraduate teaching. In 1992, Carleton created a Learning & Teaching Center to “sponsor conversations, encourage reflection, and offer a venue for classroom innovations that bear on the challenges and opportunities of education at a distinctive liberal arts college.” That long tradition has intertwined with numerous grants that have focused on civic engagement, quantitative reasoning, student reflection, and digital humanities. Carleton was a key force in the recent creation of LACOL, the Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation.
