Values, Liberal Education, and National Destiny.
McGrath, Earl J.
Discussion of the future of the liberal arts college is more fruitful if it begins not with its own practical internal matters but rather with a consideration of the problems in the supporting society in the solution of which the colleges could, if they chose to do so, render unique assistance. External activities designed to improve the lot of the colleges through more vigorous recruiting efforts, through intensified campaigns for additional financial support, through more sophisticated marketing techniques, and the internal efforts to improve operational and management efficiency will help the liberal arts colleges to survive. Innovations in the substance and the process of education will also make these institutions more attractive to students and prospective benefactors. The key to survival and continued well-being, however, lies not in tinkering with established policy and practice but rather in basic reform of the purposes and services of liberal education.
