Who are the liberal arts for? It is often assumed that liberal arts education is for the privileged, for those who have little need of a practical skill or trade.
But this view dismisses much experience which shows that the least advantaged are often the most strongly impacted by liberal arts education and have the most to gain from it. In this conversation we hear from Dr. Emily Auerbach who has spent nearly twenty years engaging in liberal arts education with the least advantaged, and Dr. Francis Su, who has mentored and co-authored with a young man who has found his voice in high level mathematics, despite being imprisoned.
