Podcast: The Idea of a University
The Cardinal Newman Liberal Arts Project is proud to present “The Idea of a University” hosted by Dr. Ron Muller and Bobby Kinkela.

May 24, 2013 (MP3) What is Liberal Arts Learning?: Liberal learning is learning that is free, born of leisure and wonder, and directed towards the most important truths and insights. In this first episode, we look at what the first principles of a university are and give a general overview of the mission and purpose of a Catholic university. This dialogue includes the topics of interdisciplinary discussion, defining liberal arts, search for happiness and the asking of the important questions of life. (25 minutes)
