Another One Bites the Dust: WS @ WSU on the Chopping Block

WSU Pullman is about to lose their Women’s Studies Program. The state is considering a 20-26% reduction in the budget for higher education and a 7% increase in tuition that barely effects the loss. As far as I know, it is the the only campus in the WSU system with Women’s Studies. The legislature has until April 26, 2009, 5 days from now, to decide if it will cut Women’s Studies or not. Students have had a rally already and the School of Liberal Arts, Dean of Diversity, and the Program have all been encouraging students and faculty to lobby the legislature. I am not really sure what people outside of Washington can do, but here are the contacts for letters supporting WS:
