    Re: ISU Announces Engineering Job Cuts

    The Dean of Engineering essentially announced this to the students months ago, without naming specific people.

    From an e-mail he sent:

    Dear Engineering Students: As you return from spring break, I want to welcome you back to campus and reach out to you with some information about the College of Engineering’s budget for next year.

    You’ve heard a lot about the budget, I’m sure. What I want to make sure you hear from me is that the engineering college is putting you first. You made a great choice in coming to Iowa State, and you expect a strong education. We will deliver.

    Our highest priority is to preserve the quality of student learning. We’re doing that by protecting the budgets of majors and academic departments. The budget cuts that we do make this year will come from administration, and even then we will focus on protecting our academic mission. We will now be directing differential tuition and technology fee funds directly to departments based on enrollments and teaching needs. And we are working to reduce or even eliminate some of the course fees that you encounter.

    I have expressed all of this to the academic departments, and to faculty and staff throughout the college, so this is my opportunity to convey this message to you directly. As always, I’m also eager to hear from you. Please don’t hesitate to share your ideas with me or to send them to

    The budget process is ongoing, so I will keep you updated as we learn more. In the meantime, I wish you the best as you focus on the final weeks of the semester. And if you see me walking along a campus pathway, in a hallway, or around my office in Marston Hall, please stop me, introduce yourself, and say hello.

    With best regards,


    Jonathan Wickert
    Dean, College of Engineering
    104 Marston Hall

    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
