Recent concerns about soaring student debt and narrowing job opportunities have raised critical questions about the value of a liberal arts education in the United States as the best means of preparing future leaders and informed citizens.

This multidisciplinary conference will address urgent issues regarding the cost and content of college education while examining the significance of the liberal arts in shaping active moral leaders who will promote the common good.
