RESIST THE MACHINE
FEED YOUR MIND
SAVE THE LIBERAL ARTS AT LENOIR-RHYNE


LR students and faculty, state your position and take your stand. Buy your shirts, buttons, or totes that make your statement at the online Store. The image is of Raphael's "School of Athens," representing the tradition of liberal arts learning. Get out the word.

I tried to post on a different thread on this general subject and got "blog not found, return to the dashboard" or some such.

This conflict between the liberal arts and specialization is not new. The University of Chicago in the thirties had a strong core curriculum, which was then cut in a move to make room for more specialization. I speculate that this might have been a delayed result of the influence of the depression, with students now motivated by the thought that with a specialization they were more likely to have remunerative employment. As a result of the cut in the liberal arts program there, some of the faculty left and took over a sort of nondescript college about to go out of business, instituting a total core liberal arts program...4 years of mandatory studies in the liberal arts, math and science, no majors, no electives, and also no lecture classes, no textbooks,and no tests. The texts are the great books, including great works of mathematics like Euclids Elements and Newton's Principia. This program begun in 1937 still exists in almost the same form..at St. John's College in Annapolis, Md, and in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Also there are Catholic colleges with similar programs and format, such as St. Thomas Aquinas in California.

It is wonderful that you are fighting for keeping more liberal arts in your college and I love your sweatshirt. But I think trying to combine the liberal arts with a basically technical education (such as nursing school...and I am also a nurse, having gone to nursing school many years after I left St. John's) is always going to be a compromise and a struggle in which the liberal arts will never be safe. There will always be people around for whom the purpose of education is only to be able to get a better job and to whom the liberal arts just don't seem useful.

PS--does the shirt say Save the Liberal Arts at LR on the back? With just the front saying, I'd love to get one...maybe to wear to my St. John's reunion. In fact, I think the St. John's bookstore might be interested in buying them, considering just the front of the shirt.
