Michael S. Roth - Beyond The University

Wesleyan President Michael S. Roth is the author of the book, Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters, published by Yale University Press in May 2014.

The broad contextual education that Wesleyan and peer institutions offer is frequently critiqued, sometimes even excoriated, by those who accuse it of not preparing graduates for success in today’s world. But that accusation, says President Michael S. Roth ’78 in his sixth and latest book, Beyond the University: Why Liberal Education Matters (Yale University Press, 2014), is as old as liberal education itself—and never less convincing than now.
