The humanities are crucial for students from all backgrounds. In a humanities education, students learn how to think critically and use problem-solving skills. Researchers in the humanities also help us preserve and understand our own history. The art and culture of our country is protected by those working in the humanities. This helps us to remember our past and prepare for our future.
Today more than ever, our country faces complex challenges. Universities are working to ensure the health and safety of all Americans. A strong humanities education is needed to meet those goals. AAU urges Congress to invest in and protect the humanities, so that Americans can celebrate the fabric of our past, while taking on the challenges of our future.
