Welcome to the Liberal Arts Endeavor, a podcast by Michigan State University’s College of Arts and Letters. Here, we’re dedicated to driving a continued conversation about the importance of public presence in an online space. On each new episode, we follow Chris Long, Dean of the College of Arts and Letters, as he takes us somewhere new to meet Arts and Letters faculty where they work.

This season we’re refocusing on the value of humanist perspective in the digital age and slowing down a bit to foster a culture of care and listening.
