UMF says, "A liberal arts education liberates individuals from the particularity of their pre-college lives and provides entry into larger communities, both intellectual and social. At the same time, a liberal arts education liberates students to find their way in a complex, interconnected world both as individuals and as members of various communities. A liberal arts education combines the discovery of new perspectives with the acquisition of core knowledge and transferable skills to empower students to be successful in a rapidly changing world. In the end, a liberal arts education offers what life post-college in a global world demands: the capacity to negotiate the tension between personal freedom and social responsibility." [Source]
