In this issue we explore Linfield’s innovative PLACE (Program for the Liberal Arts and Civic Engagement) that takes one topic – such as “Legacies of War” – and examines it from across the curriculum. We also feature three students who share their very distinctive Linfield journeys, and share the story of a student who plans to become a nurse while pursuing her love for fiddling. We’ll also give you a look at five students who have formed a new Native American student organization and at a research project that has involved one professor and 17 students over two decades. These are just a few examples of how the liberal arts develop essential aspects of character – by encouraging inquiry and social commitment. – Mardi Mileham
