“The Power of the Liberal Arts,” the symposium that is prelude to the inauguration of Clayton S. Rose as Bowdoin’s 15th president, comprises leaders from the worlds of business, design, government, higher education and public health. The symposium will be held in Pickard Theater, Memorial Hall, 2 p.m.–5 p.m., Friday, October 16, 2015. In advance of the discussion, we continue a series of participant profiles.
Former United States Senator George J. Mitchell ’54, H’83, has a long and storied career in various aspects of government and politics, working alongside global leaders, captains of industry and even baseball players.
“Only by keeping alive the liberal arts can we draw on the knowledge of the past necessary to enlighten us to make the decisions of the future,” said Mitchell, who will participate in the panel discussion “Making a Living and Making a Life: The Liberal Arts in Commerce and Citizenship.”
