DepositThe Liberal Arts Endeavor

As my inaugural editorial note for the Journal of General Education, this short essay outlines the arts of liberty as a cultivated activity at the heart of General education in the United States. The challenge of the general education endeavor is to teach the virtues of the arts of liberty at scale, recognizing that our communities are enriched when citizens have the ability to practice liberty well.
