The Role of Liberal Education with Employment

In continuation of Friday’s post, Inside Higher Ed recently shared information pertaining to a book recently released by Peter Stokes. The book focuses on the role of higher education in the process of preparing students for employment.

Stokes argues that universities need to take a serious look at their role in preparing graduates for employment. He looks at the role of academic study and work preparation and asserts that it is not an either/or but rather a both.

It is important that universities create a liberal education program that reflects this need in balancing academic skills and knowledge which align with 21st century employment demands. FHSU’s liberal education program will strive to create such a program. Please continue to attend public forums to share your thoughts in this process.
