Description

Whatever the goal of a liberal education, whether it is acquiring a core body of knowledge, a style of thinking, or the development of character, these essays suggest the importance of the academic community, characteristic of the small university, in the shaping and survival of liberal education. Small classes, a sense of community, and personal dialogue between students and faculty are ingredients that can best be provided by the small university and that make a unique contribution to the intellectual development of students.
