IUP-Help the Humanities Keep their Relevance

As it has been communicated by the institution, IUP's reorganization plan will be merging the College of Humanities and Social Sciences with the College of Fine Arts into a college of Creative Arts, Humanities and Design. The consequences of this action will be very dire, including the dismantling of many humanities departments, which can in turn affect many majors and minors. This merging will also result in the firing of many professors and staff that are essential to keeping the intellectual heart of IUP alive and well. This action needs to be stopped! The humanities play a vital role in supporting students in their future careers, and add an important dimension of critical thinking and cultural awareness. Please help the College of Humanities and Social Sciences keep its programs intact and meaningful!
