He is the author also of Revising General Education, co-authored with Jerry Gaff (2009) and General Education and Liberal Learning (2010). One of four authors of Lumina Foundation’s Degree Qualifications Profile (January 2011), he serves as a consultant to Lumina Foundation and makes frequent presentations describing the development of the Profile and its potential uses. He earned both the M.A. and the Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, where he was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow.
