EKU cuts French major, but journalism, geography get to stay - Linda Blackford, Herald-Leader

Officials cautioned that French will be taught at EKU, but students won’t be able to major or minor in it or in French instruction. Current majors will receive their degrees. All the regents voted for the cuts, except for the faculty, staff and student representatives, who abstained, citing conflicts of interest. Still, board of regents chairman Craig Turner took an angry swipe at faculty over the length of deliberations and recent commentary about the cost of EKU’s rapidly expanding athletics program. “The decision to engage all parties has not had the success I had hoped,” he said, reading from prepared remarks. “We lost focus on the task at hand … if you don’t participate, you lose your voice.”
