VIEW RECORDING

A long-standing mindset within higher education and the general public has supported the idea that broadly educating students in the classic tradition of a liberal education is incompatible with training students with more specific, job-ready skills. Is this really an either/or dichotomy or can it be a both/and? This webinar will bring together perspectives from higher education leaders, trustees, and business to explore the opportunities and complexities of translating the value proposition of the liberal arts for career success.
