Save Victor

33 Signatures Goal: 100

Recently, the IR/PS language program informed Professor Victor Zambrano that 4, instead of 6, Spanish courses would be offered in fall 2007. One of these courses is available for him to teach (instead of his current 3 courses); the other three will go to Sandra Pedregal. Victor rightly has difficulties justifying his commute from Chula Vista only to instruct one course. In turn, he most likely will leave the program. Victor is not only one of the best language professors at IR/PS, but he is also one of the most pleasant, interesting people within the graduate school. The reduction in Spanish courses reflects a general trend in the administration's faltering interest in maintaining a strong, reputable language program. More resources are going to other efforts within the program, leaving an integral part of IR/PS to suffer. It is the language program that truly makes this program unique and interesting. Without it we may as well be MBAs. That said, this move would further hamper the already deteriorating quality of the IR/PS language program and cost us one of the brightest stars our school has to offer. Please save Victor from alienation. Sign this petition.
