Freedom is the goal of the liberal education, and to know the truth sets you free.

At DRBU, students learn directly through the great books of Western, Eastern, and Buddhist thought. The texts come to life in engaging, discussion-based seminars.


A liberal arts education opens the mind and builds a foundation for a constantly changing life.
