Yesterday the American Philosophical Association, along with 15 other learned societies, issued a joint statement in opposition to the proposed program cuts at the University of Tulsa.

University administrators recently recommended eliminating a number of undergraduate majors and minors, graduate programs, and doctoral programs, primarily in the humanities and social sciences, in order to expand programs in the STEM 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 Tulsa and urging the administration to reconsider its recommendations.
