“To be 'liberally' educated is to be freed from tyranny, a tyranny of the mind that results when conventional wisdom or one's own established habits of thought replace rational scrutiny guided by the earnest desire for Truth. A liberally educated person knows how to think for him or herself, and how to do it well."
"Such an education isn't just for kids; adult learners can reap its benefits, too. In an age where one's career path is likely to wend its way through different employers and fields, workers with a solid foundation in critical, transferable skills. The abilities to think, speak, and write well are sure to continue to be highly prized.”
