Day 17- Wednesday, January 29, 2014
My presentation to the Legislative committee went well. One of the committee members, prior to my presentation, made a negative comment about liberal art majors. Fortunately, I prepare my own PowerPoint presentations and while waiting for my turn to speak, found an article that Provost Brad Cook sent to me about average incomes for humanities and social science graduates in the nation. I slid the graph into my presentation and added a comment in support of the liberal arts. By the way, I was a philosophy major and it has served me very well in every professional job I have had.
I met up with a dozen students from SUU for lunch at the Capitol cafeteria. Also at lunch was Senator Evan Vickers, Representative John Westwood, Mayor Wilson, Leavitt Center Director, Eric Kirby and SUU government relations’ officer, Donna Law. We had a delightful visit.
