Keep Childhood Studies part of Rutgers University

    1. Petition by

      Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers-Camden

 

The State of New Jersey is threatening to sever Rutgers-Camden, and the Department of Childhood Studies, from Rutgers University as a whole, thereby diminishing the program and negatively impacting students, faculty and scholarship.

      Rutger's Childhood studies program is a one of a kind academic program in this country, working on cutting-edge scholarship. It would be a shame to lose such a program.

      As Coordinator of the Children's Studies Program at York University, Toronto, Canada, I write in solidarity with the Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers-Camden. The Rutgers Childhood Studies program has been a world leader in the field of Children's and Childhood Studies. Any change that threatens to diminish its role in this emerging and vital field of studies is a blow not only to Rutgers University but everyone in the international community of scholars devoted to studies of children and youth.
