Why the Liberal Arts Matter

Our strength, our strongest asset is the kind of work we do in the liberal arts -- the range of questions we ask and the diverse ways we explore them. In a time of hyper communication and intense conflict over fundamental values, the liberal arts are uniquely suited to address the challenges facing our economy, our democracy, and our society.

This is vital work. Join us.
