The Liberal Arts in Washington State

James McGrath just tweeted a link to this article by Michael Zimmerman at the Huffington Post. It is a great piece on the value of the liberal arts, and it highlights how employers actually want exactly what liberal arts grads have to offer. The exerpt from the winner of the student essay...superb! This is why I teach undergraduates at a liberal arts institution. This is why I believe the liberal arts is the best education on offer.

Anyone for a Canadian Consortium for the Liberal Arts? I am all for it.
