Let's let them know we want the Program back.
Please join us at McHenry Library at 12:30 on Wednesday, June 7th. We will then march on Kerr Hall at 1pm to say hello to the administrators.
The long lived and long acclaimed Journalism Program at UCSC was cut in 2003 by the decision of one Dean of Humanities. He did not discuss this decision with professors, other faculty, or students.
It is the opinion of the Journalism Now Committee, and many student media organization members that this was an unfair, unnecessary, and detrimental decision in relation to the success of education at UCSC.
A new Dean of Humanities will be clocking-in this summer. The Journalism Now Committee agrees with an opinion expressed at the last academic senate meeting: now is the opportunity to improve the fate of writing courses at UCSC.
Please take your academic experience into your own hands and do whatever you can to save the programs you value.
When: Wednesday, June 7th, 12:30 PM
Where: McHenry Library (then march to Kerr Hall)
