Your life’s mission

In Redefining the Liberal Arts, Sandra M. Moore asks, “What if colleges asked students to declare a mission rather than a major? What if kids were required to reflect more broadly on what they wanted to accomplish in life, rather than simply identify the company they’d like to work for? What if instead of using the academic curriculum to passively “fill a mind” colleges made sure that students were equipped with the kind of critical thinking and communication skills that might enable them to “change a mind” and, in so doing, make a positive impact on our ever-expanding global society?”
