Shifting Career Mindsets from ‘Either/Or’ to ‘Both/And’ When It Comes to the Liberal Arts and Job-specific Training
December 16, 2020
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 brought 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.
This webinar was presented in partnership with Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) and Kaplan, with special thanks to the generous support of Kaplan.
