Save Psychology at WMU

We are writing to you on behalf of psychology students at Western Michigan University. As many of you may have heard, WMU President Judith I. Bailey and Provost Linda Delene recently announced the elimination of the doctorate program for clinical psychology and school psychology as well as the master\'s program for industrial psychology. We strongly believe that this decision is a grave error that will hurt WMU, the surrounding community, and the profession for years to come.


We are asking you for your help in saving these valuable programs. To that end, we have constructed an informational website at There you can find information regarding the negative impact cutting these programs will have and what you can do to help. One of the main things we are asking is for you to take some time to write. We know that in these busy times that may be asking a lot, but the damage from cutting these programs may be irreversible. Please write the Board of Trustees, the media, and whoever else you thinking would listen. Whether you are a student, a faculty member, an alumni, a donor, a parent of a psychology student, a taxpayer (universities are publicly funded institutes) or just a concerned member of the community, please let the Board of Trustees and media know how you feel about these decisions. Many of you have personal stories to tell about the WMU clinical and industrial psychology, and these stories can help sway the opinions of those who make the final decisions.
