An examination of the liberal arts

A high level of student engagement is a key part of a liberal arts education.

Do liberal arts colleges have an image problem? They are often perceived as being elite and irrelevant, but the best of them excel in areas such as student engagement and critical thinking. Times Higher Education reported on the current state of liberal arts institutions, and Furman is mentioned as one of the schools trying to change the narrative. President Elizabeth Davis is also quoted about The Furman Advantage. “So now we’ve created a system where we can track every student, where they can be advised and mentored to be sure that not only do they have the experiences but they know how to talk about them in a way so employers or graduate schools can understand the skills they’ve developed,” she said.
