The article covers Cornell’s strategic planning process and Brand’s plan to re-imagine the way the liberal arts are taught at the college. Brand talked about the way learning goes beyond the classroom and now includes residence life and co-curricular activities, as well as the value that a liberal arts education provides. He also spoke about the way Cornell trains its students to make a real difference in the world.

“If you’re only trained for a particular vocation, then you’re prepared to exist in the world as it is, but you’re not prepared to change the world,” Mr. Brand said. “I think that’s a pretty powerful case for the liberal arts.”
