    Abstract:
    Declining numbers of majors have become a pressing concern for chairs of English and Foreign Language departments. With the celebration of STEM disciplines and students' and parents' concerns about the job prospects for humanities graduates, English and Foreign Language department chairs find themselves needing to fight for the health of our majors in ways that we did not need to in previous decades. And, of course, it becomes imperative to focus on recruiting because declines in the number of majors affect everything we do--our ability to run upper-level courses, hire new faculty, and make a strong case university resources.
