Measuring a Liberal Education and its Relationship with Labor Market Outcomes: An Exploratory Analysis
Rayane Alamuddin, Daniel Rossman
In an exploratory project funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Ithaka S+R developed a novel approach to measuring a liberal arts and sciences educational experience, and examining its relationship with student outcomes. They will present their framework for defining and capturing the core features of a liberal arts and sciences educational experience, their index for measuring the degree to which a subset of higher education institutions in the US have offered those features to their students, and their institution-level analyses examining the relationship between index scores and students’ short-term academic and long-term labor market outcomes.
