April 12, 2012

Few other sectors of higher education have seen the kind of doom-and-gloom rhetoric that liberal arts colleges have seen in recent years, but for the roughly 200 liberal arts college presidents and administrators at a conference on "The Future of the Liberal Arts College," there's a sense that the rhetoric might be a little overheated. In order to avoid significant change (or irrelevancy), however, conference attendees noted that they are going to have to do a better job cutting through the prevailing discussion surrounding higher education to explain what they do and why it is valuable to various constituents.
