This talk will explore how we can raise children who care about others and about justice as well as the particular challenges of raising caring, justice-minded children in this time. These challenges include the degree to which parents have prioritized achievement and happiness over concern for others and the common good, moral corruption in our country and widespread political antagonism and polarization. How during this time can we raise children who are not cynical or detached in the face of these challenges but caring and committed to a better and more just world?

A liberal arts education prepares students to be critical thinkers with the skills to have meaningful impact on their communities. While many will not pursue STEM-based endeavors, students need to be technically literate with the confidence to interact with unfamiliar technical areas. The IQ Center, W&L's very own "makerspace," embedded in the liberal arts, can infuse technical experiences across campus, through curricular and co-curricular programming.
