I URGE you to read this. URGE. And then contact the University to express your disgust.
Or just read it and seethe for a little while. Either way, I would say it is essential for everyone – associated or not with the University – to look into how things are run. This is something I wish had been written years ago, because the University needs to be called out.
I wouldn’t trade my education at USM for the world, my experiences here have been phenomenal because of my professors, but this is outrageous. I am embarrassed.
CLICK HERE to read the article by economist Susan Feiner, published in the Portland Press Herald. This article accompanies the news that USM is eliminating several departments, one of which is Geosciences. I will write a whole other post about that.
Come ONNNN people.
