619. Program Discontinuance on the Rise?

Monday, 5 January, 5:15–6:30 p.m., Jefferson, Sheraton

Program arranged by the American Association of University Professors

Presiding: Gwendolyn Bradley, American Association of Univ. Professors

Speakers: Jason B. Jones, Central Connecticut State Univ.; Michelle A. Massé, Louisiana State Univ., Baton Rouge; Donna L. Potts, Kansas State Univ.

Session Description:

Increasing pressure on public colleges and universities to reduce costs has led to instances of program discontinuances, often including humanities programs. We will lay out some cases of program discontinuances, ask how student access to higher education is affected, review a new AAUP report on program discontinuance, and ask what faculty members can and should do when the issue arises.
