A Panel Discussion on the Importance of the Humanities for the World of Work

We’ve all seen recent headlines raising questions about the value of the liberal arts and humanities for newly graduated students seeking employment. How can we and our students better articulate the relevance of the humanities for life beyond Wake Forest? Come join colleagues and friends for a panel discussion on the humanities and the world of work. Hear from a great panel of speakers, share your insights and bring your questions. Encourage your students and colleagues to attend and bring your classes if you can!
