Petition to Secure Our Free Trade Class
It has come to our attention that Professor Bill Cohn's Summer 2016 class, Free Trade, is at risk of becoming a seminar class due to the number of students enrolled. This will result in fewer class hours and less pay for Professor Cohn, which places the class in jeopardy of being withdrawn by Professor Cohn himself.
Many of us choose our classes, such as this one, because we enjoy and respect Professor Cohn's knowledge and style of teaching, and feel he is an invaluable part of our education at The University of New York in Prague. One benefit of a university-level education should be the freedom to choose from an array of subjects we feel can enhance our scholarship. With such an extremely limited number of Summer class options as it is, we find it to be unfair that our Free Trade class could potentially be shortened or withdrawn.
With this petition, we are asking that you acknowledge our wishes to let our Free Trade class with Professor Cohn remain a regular, 3-credit class, with meetings on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 12:00-15:00 for the duration of the Summer semester. This ensures fair pay for Professor Cohn and that our scheduled class will remain as it was structured when we chose it.
Those who sign this petition, but are not enrolled in the class, sign in support of our requests.
