UATX Is Bringing Elevated Discourse Back To Higher Education | The Show

Liberal arts education once cultivated well-rounded, critically thinking individuals who would become our future innovators and leaders. However, in recent years, intellectual diversity, curiosity, and discourse have departed the halls of our most elite universities. Pano Kanelos, the founding president of UATX, believes that ideological capture and the overall homogenization of higher education are to blame.

UATX, the University of Austin, has emerged as a reason for hope amidst negative trends at mainstream universities. This radical new experiment in higher education is putting quintessential liberal values at the center of the conversation. A graduate of UATX won’t just be an adept thinker, but an engaged, innovative citizen.
