Shultz in The San Diego Tribune The authors argue that today's employers value innovation and creativity and that an education taht blends both STEM fields and the arts & humanities is the best preparation for the workplace. They note that more and more employers are recognizing "the vital role of the arts, the liberal arts, as a pathway to success and survival in the new, truly global, economy and society."  It is the responsibility of universities, then, to ensure that students have opportunities to explore and gain experience with a wide variety of subjects across all of these disciplines.
