Lawrence in the
The New York Times published a letter to the editor in the December 15 edition from President Daniel F. Sullivan. His letter responds to an article about the cost and value of a liberal arts edition by Jonathan Glater, and an oped by Tom Friedman on learning to learn. President Sullivan said, in part, "Private liberal arts colleges demand the best academically and engage the whole student. It’s the kind of education I want for those tackling tough issues on my behalf: diplomats seeking Middle East peace; doctors treating my illness and me as a person; lawyers advocating and pursuing justice.
"I would also include authors helping me understand the human condition; manufacturers making excellent products and caring about their workers and the environment; and business leaders using the global economy to produce greater wealth and standards of living in sustainable ways.
"Worth it? Yes."
