The Loss of the University


Few essays more cogently or provocatively analyze the problems with modern education better than Wendell Berry’s “The Loss of the University,” printed here with an insightful introduction by Dr. Edward Blews, former president of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities, as well as discussion questions and resources for small group use.

The Loss of the University

Where higher education once aimed to unify diverse fields of knowledge and disciplines to cultivate fully developed human beings, the increasing separation of the disciplines, the rise of job and technical training, and loss of confidence in the humanities have transformed the very idea of the university.

With wit, charity, and hope, Berry, a renowned author and 2012 Jefferson Lecturer (the highest award given in the humanities) describes a different way – one that educates the whole person and draws upon imagination and judgment as well as the reason – in this powerful essay.
