“For more than a century and a half, Lawrence University has challenged students to live the life of the mind. In this volume, Lawrence alumni describe the ways in which that life shaped them personally and professionally, opening new directions and unexpected opportunities. At a time when liberal arts education is under attack as impractical and ill suited to the demands of a modern global economy, these essays exemplify its virtues, values, and tangible benefits. Much more than a way of getting living, the liberal arts foster an engagement with knowledge and the great human question “what can you do with a liberal arts degrees?” by illustrating the wide variety of fruitful career paths that a Lawrence education makes possible. Supplemented by contributions from Lawrence administrators and faculty, the essays in Learning For a Lifetime offer a powerful reminder that the mind’s life is the best life of all.” -Jerald Podair
