Humanities and Liberal Arts in Public Research Universities

The finances of public research universities are changing rapidly. Students and families tend to be more concerned with career objectives. These factors couple with the long-standing but evolving debates on general education and distribution requirements to bring about deep and stark questions about the future of humanities and liberal arts in public research universities. A team of Paula Fass and Judson King is working to organize group methodologies that are solution-oriented and can contribute to conclusions and practicable proposals that will influence and lead national consideration of these important issues.
