Abstract:

A blueprint for higher education faculty, boards, presidents, senior leaders, parents, students, recent graduates, and other stakeholders. Blueprints are quintessential to any construction project. Also considered a set of vital communication tools, blueprints ensure that anyone involved in the project will understand what is required of the finished project. In the world of service organizations, blueprints can support innovation and diagnose problems in operational efficiency highlighting disconnects between what is offered and what people experience. Upon examining the state of humanities today, it becomes rather obvious thatsix disconnects exists. Colleges have done a poor job helping people outside the academy understand the terms liberal arts, humanities, liberal education, and liberal arts colleges (The Explanation Disconnect). Liberal arts and humanities faculty, as well as presidents, boards, and other stakeholders misunderstand the relevance of the humanities to the workplace (The Comprehension Disconnect). Higher education institutions need to improve how humanities majors translate their value to the marketplace (The Translation Disconnect). Administrators, faculty, and staff need to think differently and provide humanities majors witha modern perspective on career opportunities (The Perception Disconnect). In order for humanities majors to maintain relevance in the 21st century workplace, institutions need to teach students the dynamics involved with pursuing a vocation (The Vocation Disconnect). Finally, institutions need to help humanities majors increase their self-awareness in order for them to engage in self-determination and prepare for life after college accordingly (The Cultivation Disconnect). The Relevance of the humanities to the 21st century workplace provides a blueprint that higher education administrators, faculty, and stakeholders can use inorder to improve how people view, interact, and use the humanities in today's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) global marketplace. The challenges of automation, artificial intelligence, and yet to be invented technologies will continue to disrupt how people live, work, and learn. With colleges and universities slow to acknowledge the realities of today's issues, higher education leaders need to have a bias toward action and commit to explaining the relevance of the humanities to the 21st century workplace.
