Guests: Rebecca Chopp and Dan Weiss
Over the past decade, the college landscape has changed dramatically. Student debt has skyrocketed, thousands of people are taking courses online, and pressure is mounting for college grads to have a practical skill set. Where does the residential liberal arts college fit in the midst of all these changes? In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll hear from REBECCA CHOPP, president of Swarthmore College, and DAN WEISS, president of Haverford College, editors of the new book Remaking College: Innovation and the Liberal Arts. They’ll discuss what a liberal arts education should look like in twenty-first century, the challenges many schools face, and why it matters.
