Society for Better Educational Engagement at LUMS (BEE at LUMS)
Last academic year, we - researchers working for the LUMS School of Education (LUMS SOE) - got together because we felt LUMS lacked space for deliberate educational engagement. We felt this was alarming since college education is perhaps the most formative period in our lives and situated within the context of a leading university, even more so. Despite its crucial role in our economy and quality of life, we feel that students are disengaged from thinking deeply and critically about the practices through which they are taught. They do not question the ways that the educational system runs or the principles it inculcates. Therefore, society for Better Educational Engagement (BEE) at LUMS was founded on the philosophical foundations of deeper understanding and appreciation of the educational system. We want to provide students the space to think about what they want from their education beyond the distraction of getting a good GPA. Concisely, we want students to take ownership of their self-actualization journey at LUMS and think about what matters to them.
