"Colleges Aim to Revive the Humanities"
I like the change of tone, but there are a lot of aspects to what this article covers that make me wonder... For example, I don't think we need "reviving;" just better understanding. Am I naïve? And more crucially, check out our spokespeople:

Are the humanities a luxury that public institutions really do without?
