O The Humanities! How Long Before Rutgers Follows SUNY Albany's Lead?

Sharp cuts in state aid have caused the State University of New York at Albany to outright cut many of its humanities programs, according to The Huffington Post. Surely it won't be long before Rutgers University suffers the same fate, given the harsh budget cutting going on in Trenton. Maybe there will be no need for art, language, music, and the classics at the college level after Governor Christie's cuts to state aid ravage the public high schools?

New Jerseyans ought to think long and hard about the sort of society they want. See what Stanley Fish has to say about the battle to preserve the humanities in his NY Times opinion piece The Crisis of the Humanities Officially Arrives.
