With Indiana Wesleyan University's recent announcement to induct actor Kirk Cameron into their hall of "World Changers" on April 11, 2012, the university president and board of directors cheapen the legacy of the university and disappoint a not insignificant number of alumni and supporters. Cameron is not representative of the university's goals in higher education, and inauspiciously casts a pall over IWU's hard-earned reputation as a serious liberal arts university. Though other inductees have likewise been suspect, Cameron's inclusion without academic merit (and with questionable intellectual and ideological underpinnings) is by far the worst choice for this honor by the collective leadership of Indiana Wesleyan University. This decision is not something that the alumni of IWU nor it's supporters wish to see come to pass. As a precursor to an even greater tide of disapproval, we, the alumni and supporters of Indiana Wesleyan University sign this petition in solidarity, respectfully pleading that the university president and board of directors reconsider, and ultimately rescind their conferring of this recognition upon Kirk Cameron.

    This will put the IWU on par with a pre-school in standing.

    I find your comments as a disciple of Jesus Christ and a spiritual brother in Christ of Kirk to be highly offensive and highly judgmental. Not sure what you consider a world changer to be. If Kirk isn't, then I'm curious what constitutes a world changer. His labor of love in helping to equip the body of Christ to share the Gospel has been extremely valuable. Far more than many in the body of Christ I see today. As if a degree from a Christian University somehow qualifies someone to have academic merit. Keep in mind if that is your qualification, you would have not only discounted the biggest world changer ever, our Lord Jesus, whose only background before ministry was as a carpenter and all 11 disciples, most whom the world would look at today and despise (fishermen, tax collector, etc.). Yet those men turned the world upside down. You should be ashamed.
