Below you will find a link to a fantastic article by Michael Roth, the president of Wesleyan University in Connecticut. The article, really an extremely well written blog post, is provocative. Inspired by the critical and commercial success of the Broadway musical “Hamilton”, Roth makes an interesting connection between the show (and its creators) and the value of an education at liberal arts colleges. The article is well worth reading in my view. Of course, the only thing that would make this a better story would be if Lin-Manuel Miranda had attended Hamilton College, my alma mater, but Wesleyan seems to have prepared him well.
