Liberal Arts Illuminated: July 11-13, 2016

Liberal arts colleges are more important, and more practical, than ever. But they face enormous and unprecedented challenges — challenges related to their purpose, their role, their value and, ultimately, to their sustainability and viability as institutions.

There is tremendous opportunity in those challenges.

We are called to innovate, to embrace risk in new ways and to define a future for our students and our institutions that positions the liberal arts as a critical part of our social, political and economic future.

We are called to lead.
