Philosophy Department on Chopping Block at Mills - Rick Seltzer, Inside Higher Ed

Mills College faculty members are speaking out against cuts after learning last week that plans call for laying off tenured professors and eliminating departments at the women’s liberal arts college -- departments including philosophy. The Board of Trustees of the college in Oakland, Calif., is expected to vote this month on cuts in order to close a $9.1 million deficit. Mills is operating under a state of financial emergency as leaders attempt to end a series of deficits within three years through cuts, curricular changes and new partnerships. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2017/06/12/philosophy-department-chopping-block-mills
