LaTeX at a liberal arts college

Jon Breitenbucher


Does LaTeX have a place in a liberal arts education? Yes, and in this article I present my reasons for introducing LaTeX in an undergraduate liberal arts setting. I also present how I introduced LaTeX, issues that were encountered, and what students and faculty think the impact has been.

Jon W. Breitenbucher is an Instructional Technology Specialist and Adjunct Professor at the College of Wooster (Ohio, USA). He was introduced to LaTeX in 1992 and has been using it for all course-related materials since that time. One of his goals is to introduce LaTeX to as many people as he can.
