The article discusses the significance of an institution's liberal arts colleges in the U.S. Liberal arts colleges have long played an important role in the production of the nation's scientist than their enrollments have suggested. The transformation of modern scientific research holds the promise of increasing the role of these colleges. The case for scientific literacy is good for science and for the country if more students are applying it in their undergraduate education.
