Rethinking Preparation for Work: A Civic-Enriched Liberal Education

In a world where college graduates spend the majority of their public lives engaged in work, this issue of Peer Review, sponsored by the Kettering Foundation, focuses on how colleges might reconceive preparation for work in addition to preparation for citizenship. Instead of making the case for civic learning only by noting that civic education skills also are useful in getting a job, this issue explores whether there is a more expansive and civic notion of work to which higher education might contribute.
