About This Show
John Malcolm McCardell, Jr. is the president emeritus of Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont, and the Vice Chancellor-Elect of The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He is also founder of Choose Responsibility, a non-profit group that advocates the counter-intuitive idea that changing the drinking age to 18 will help mitigate campus binge-drinking.
He joins Dr. Edgar to talk about the value of a liberal arts education as well as how parents, law enforcement, educational programs, and faculty and staff at colleges and universities can help fight an epidemic of underage drinking.
