Save American Studies at MSU

On October 30, Michigan State University Provost Kim Wilcox recommended the elimination of the American Studies Graduate Program as well as several other programs as part of a budget reduction plan that he presented to the Board of Trustees. Provost Wilcox admitted on October 30 that he did not know what, if anything, would be saved by cutting programs, and Dean Karin Wurst, has only referred vaguely to the "Current economic climate" as justification for eliminating the program. This is disturbing given the urgency of realizing actual savings in the budget, because nothing is saved by eliminating American Studies. Please sign your name to this petition to save American Studies at Michigan State because if it can happen at such a great state institution, it can happen anywhere.
