I am not posting these to put down liberal arts colleges/universities/programs.  In fact, I went through a liberal arts program in college and I’m currently working at a liberal arts college.  Rather, I’m posting them to say, “Houston, we have a problem.”  And to then prompt us all to ask, “What are we going to do about it?” 

Which reminds me again of a graphic I created a while back:
