For many decades, even centuries, liberal education has been thought of as the gold standard of higher learning. But current economic trends and pressures have led many observers to question the usefulness of a liberal education and the viability of the liberal arts college. This event will bring together people who have ideas worth spreading about the future of liberal education, and about how the liberal arts college might adapt to a changing society.
