Carleton’s career center’s mentor externship program is prominently mentioned in an Aug. 11 article in Forbes, authored by Albion College (Mich.) president Donna Randall. She makes the case that a liberal arts education is excellent preparation for a variety of careers, and calls for liberal arts school to stay true to its mission. “We can and should commit ourselves more completely to providing students with education that encompasses both the timelessness of broad-based study in the arts and sciences, and the timeliness of practical preparation–leading to productive careers and satisfying lives.”
