"The humanities (liberal arts) play a special role in education, for without them, we would merely be training students, not educating them. Typically in our high-tech age, engineers, for example, are no longer practising engineering 10 years after graduating. Therefore instilling the ability to think about sociological, psychological and political issues is crucial in preparing them for the leadership roles they will play."
