The Unexpected Value of the Liberal Arts
Braven, a nonprofit founded by Aimée Eubanks Davis, a former Teach for America executive, is offering career-readiness programs to students on campus. Making its debut in 2014, Braven already has reached about 1,000 students at Rutgers University-Newark in New Jersey and San Jose State University in California. Expansion into the Midwest is on tap. Braven mixes students majoring in the liberal arts and those pursuing vocational degrees in each cohort, the theory being that all can learn from one another.
