  • Communicating Liberal Arts
    Kravis 164
    CMC’s distinctive liberal arts curriculum continues to draw acclaim and applicants to the College. But the term “liberal arts” is increasingly confusing or even contentious to much of the general population. Some colleges and universities are avoiding using the term “liberal education” or even dropping the use of “liberal arts” as a descriptor. How can CMC effectively communicate the timeless value of a liberal education, which is an education to empower and liberate individuals and society, amid pressure to show the material benefits of a college education? Join Vice President for Academic Affairs Peter Uvin and Associate Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications Peter Hong for a discussion on how we can effectively explain the purpose, value and relevance of the liberal arts today.
