Today’s (and tomorrow’s) employers are looking for the skills and qualities that are at the heart of liberal arts education.

 

The American Association of Colleges and Universities conducted a nationwide survey of many different stakeholders in American education, including a subsample of employers. Part of that survey specifically gauged employer interest in liberal education learning outcomes. Here are some of the findings:

 

75% of employers wanted more  emphasis on ethical decision making

81% of employers wanted more emphasis on critical thinking and analytic reasoning

89% of employers wanted more emphasis on written and oral communication.

 

We educate within a set of higher order values toward a communal greater good. We train the mind to be critical, flexible, and expansive beyond the constraints of the present. The liberal arts imbue richness and creativity into our inner and outer worlds. They allow those who are open to them to better see, understand, and generate the richness and possibility of things both within and beyond ourselves, our community and our world.
