Engineering + Humanities…now on Colbert

18 Aug

Here’s a link to a segment of the Colbert Report where he interviews Richard Brodhead, the President of Duke. Brodhead notes the importance of humanities for all learning, but highlights the place of the humanities and communication for engineering, in particular.

This resonates with a keynote by Robert Gerstenmaier, a biggie at NASA, given at the UW’s MEPP residency start a couple of years ago.  Gerstenmaier also had an appearance on Colbert!
