Today the American Philosophical Association, along with more than 20 other learned societies, issued a joint statement in opposition to the proposed program cuts at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point.

University administrators recently recommended eliminating thirteen majors, primarily in the humanities and social sciences, in order to reallocate resources to expand programs in the STEM and business fields.

The APA has a longstanding commitment to supporting the discipline and profession of philosophy as well as the humanities as a whole. In issuing the statement, the APA stands with other scholarly societies in recognizing the threat to humanities programs at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and urging the administration to reconsider its recommendations.
