Session Description:

Administrators, funding agencies, legislators, taxpayers, donors, parents, students, and colleagues in science, business, engineering, and medicine: how can we address these diverse audiences on their terms? Given these groups' priorities and obligations, what compelling reasons can we offer that it is in their interest to become advocates for the study of literature and languages? Our distinguished panelists share insight, advice, and experiences.
