Under attack for centuries, liberal arts institutions continually fend off assaults on their industrial relevance, academic purity, or socioeconomic accessibility. All of these attacks demonstrate a blatant misunderstanding of the unique value provided by a liberal arts education. There are countless articles and opinion pieces on how to save liberal arts education, yet most cannot see past our current institutional challenges. This manifesto takes a first principles approach to exploring the fundamental value of a liberal arts education and offers recommendations on how to reintroduce those values in our modern world.
