Summary

#SxCollege

We are living in a time of vast, fast and unprecedented change in our world and will need educated citizens equipped with the skills, character and mindsets to tackle complex challenges and make decisions of consequence. Liberal arts colleges are institutions that are fundamentally committed to a deep, broad education that cultivates and launches the leaders we need. The best colleges will be those that continue to adapt and innovate in what they offer to best serve today's young people and society. In this panel we'll engage in a dialogue with the presidents of some of the top colleges in the country and their visions for the future of liberal arts and the roles of colleges in society.
