Report - Commission on the Humanities and Social Sciences

If we aspire to provide a four-year college education that transcends

the acquisition of specific job skills, we need to be able to specify

what the content of such an education would be, and what would

constitute the measure of its assessment. If, for instance, we actually

believe that college students should receive a “liberal” education,

what do we have to do to ensure that they are receiving it

—From Stanley Katz, “The ‘Best-Educated’ Country,” The Chronicle of Higher Education, April 14, 2010
