    Isn't Curtiss the main Ag building? I don't see them cutting any of those programs.

    Re: ISU Likely to Cut Departments

    There are some departments and curriculums that need to go. They are nothing more than remedial Grade 13 programs.

    It's astonishing what some people can receive for a University degree nowadays...........and a few of those folks are on athletic scholarship.


    "We are first and foremost an educational institution that values integrity, honesty and treating others with fairness and respect".

    -ISU President Gregory Geoffroy; circa May 2003.

    Anthro is up on the top floor and there's a couple other mini programs around in there that I wouldn't be surprised to see go first

    Ha, reminds me of when I had to deliver stuff to Lagomarcino for my job and had to decipher their god-awful room numbering system.

    Re: ISU Likely to Cut Departments

    I would hope ISU would look at what UNI, U of I offers and see which programs overlap. Does each regent school need a sociology, anthropology, etc. department? Tough times call for tough decisions.

    No, they need to look at what departments aren't offering the University funding or the possibility of future funding through grants, etc.

    It's mind-boggling the amount of tenured professors at a research instiution who aren't even attempting to do...you know...research

    Lots of universities are going through this same process. Michigan State, a valued peer univ. of ISU's is being gutted in some areas...
