Prospective students often ask, “What does ‘liberal arts’ mean?” Well, liberal arts means that we are interested in a wide range of subjects, but also that we approach those subjects in a way that doesn’t just have the faculty member dispensing knowledge, but having faculty members engage students in processing that knowledge and understanding what that means and testing assumptions. And in small classes, faculty and students can be collaborators in that quest for knowledge, and I think that’s really important. The legendary DePauw communications professor, Dr. Robert Weiss, used to say, “At most universities we leave no question unanswered, but what should be saying is we leave no answer unquestioned.” And I think that’s the process of the liberal arts, is that we’re challenging assumptions and testing knowledge. Because ultimately, we’re not trying to create liberal arts graduates who just can get a job and have a batch of knowledge. We’re trying to create people who can go out and be somebody and engage their communities and contribute to society.
