Petition to SUNY Geneseo
Keep the "Arts" in "Liberal Arts" at SUNY Geneseo
Recently, President Battles has decided to terminate Finger Lakes Opera at SUNY Geneseo. This program has flourished over the past three years, as well as "become a go-to summer music place in our area" (Rochester City Newspaper). While many students, faculty, and professionals across the country are upset by this, it is important that we take action in situations like these in order to prevent similar cuts to the Arts programs at Geneseo. By signing this petition, you are giving your support to the the Arts at SUNY Geneseo. Hopefully by seeing how much support there is for the Arts here, the College will feel more inclined to keep programs like Finger Lakes Opera running in the future in an attempt to "look for sustainable ways to enhance our capacity as a public cultural resource" (Denise Battles).
