According to an informational page, the plan
recommends discontinuing the following low-enrollment majors: French, German, philosophy, and religion. Courses will be taught in at least some of these disciplines, but the majors would no longer be available to incoming students starting with the Fall 2020 incoming class.
There are no plans to terminate any tenured faculty, but no comment was made regarding tenure-track faculty, lecturers, and adjuncts.
Here is the criteria used in deciding which programs to propose discontinuing:
a) First-time, full-time enrollments in majors under 10
b) Three-year Enrollment Funnel Trends (2016-2018)
c) Full-time majors at census under 10
d) Retention in first major below 80%
e) Completions in majors below five (completions captured migrations from other majors)
f) Load hours per full-time faculty full-time equivalent at 450 or lower (average is 560)
g) Low enrollment in upper-level courses below seven
h) High school programs and levels of interest in areas of study
i) Reduction or re-assignment of full-time positions on faculty retirement
j) Other variables specific to the major
There are currently 2 philosophy majors in the school.
