Professor Frank Ambrosio Addresses Incoming Students

As last year's winner of the Dorothy Brown award, Professor Frank Ambrosio (Philosophy) was asked to welcome incoming students at this year's New Student Convocation on Sunday, August 30th.  (The Dorothy Brown award is given annually by the student body to the faculty member who has had the strongest impact on the students’ collegiate experience.)  In his brief address, Ambrosio, who collaborates with CNDLS on the MyDante project, explored the idea of a liberal arts education as "an education that liberates." According to Ambrosio, "Liberal education frees questions from the constraint of answers that claim to be 'good enough.' It frees minds from the dogma of settled opinion and frees them for the reality of mystery." You can view a video of Ambrosio's remarks here.
