A liberal arts education helps students learn to both speak for themselves as well as listen to different views of the world. So explains Jane Jackson, who graduated from Fort Lewis College in May with a bachelor's degree in History, in her award-winning essay, “Reflections on a College Experience.”

That essay earned Jackson the 2014 Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges' David J. Prior Award. The award recognizes senior-level undergraduates whose academic careers and future goals have been shaped by the transformative power of the liberal arts and sciences.
