Reinstate Faculty Governance

112 Signatures Goal: 250

As a member of the alumni community of the Medill School of Journalism, I endorse changes to the school that will improve the quality of the education for students, enhance the reputation of the program and add value to the diploma that I hold. I believe, however, that any changes should be taken with careful consideration and deliberation. These changes MUST include votes from all faculty members because these professors not only have invested themselves in the future of their students, but also, as professors of journalism and often journalists themselves, can offer insight into the profession that cannot be discredited. The current changes to the Medill School of Journalism, which include, but are not limited to a curriculum overhaul, a dismantling of the news services, a name change of the school and dissolution of several successful aspects of the program, should at the very least include a faculty vote. As members of the Medill School of Journalism community, it is their right to decide on the future of the school. It is also their right to express dissent without fear of losing their jobs. I therefore endorse this petition to immediately restore faculty governance to the Medill School of Journalism.
