IPFW revises budget cuts, pushes forward with realignment process - Jesse Naranjo, Indiana Daily Student

After facing backlash from students and faculty, IU-Purdue University Fort Wayne backtracked on plans to slash the women’s studies program while still seeking to make budget cuts in the coming years. The majority of the program, chaired by Professor Janet Badia, will be absorbed by the Department of Political Science but will keep autonomy on matters of curriculum. In a radio interview with 89.1 WBOI-FM Badia said she thought about leaving the school but plans to remain for the 
students. “I am so inspired by our students,” Badia said in the interview. “Their outreach, their advocacy, their activism — it motivates me to want to stay at IPFW.”
