There IS Value In Creativity Despite What You Hear

Interesting read by Stephen Beal, President, California College of the Arts: What Is the Value of a College Degree?

An excerpt reads:

Interdisciplinary, collaborative, diverse, project-based, and inclusive — these terms describe the learning environment we strive to create. It also describes the evolving and expanding workplace our new graduates will enter. Despite gloomy news stories about the scarcity of jobs, creative people are in demand, and will continue to be. According to a recent study by the National Endowment for the Arts, jobs in the creative sector will increase overall by 11 percent in the next six years, with some careers projected to grow at a much higher rate, especially curators, interior designers, animators, illustrators, architects, and writers.
