Do the humanities need saving or storytelling?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, humanities departments across higher ed have been suffering from declining enrollments. And yet some departments are growing through creative strategies such as student ambassadors for the department, cross-university partnerships, events and takeovers of shared campus spaces, and advertising the outcomes of their alumni

The takeaway? Your declining programs may be declining because of real market trends. Or they might just be declining because people just aren’t aware of how great they really are.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
