Program Rescue

If your program is threatened with a cut in positions or funding, or some other measure that will weaken Classics (such as elimination of a major), you should contact following people. It is important to give them as much information as possible about your situation.

  1. The Director of CAS,
    Jeffrey J. Henderson
    William Goodwin Aurelio Professor of Greek
    Department of Classical Studies
    Boston University
    745 Commonwealth Avenue
    Boston, MA 02215

    617.353.2427
    jhenders@bu.edu
     

  2. The Executive Director of the SCS, Helen Cullyer. Telephone: 212-992-7828
    FAX: 215-573-7874
     
  3. The President or appropriate officer of any other Regional, State or Local Organization. The largest of these is CAMWS (Classical Association of the Middle West and South), which covers more than half of the US and Canada.

    All these individuals can give you specific advice, can contact Deans and others at your institution, and can generate support from others in the field. The Executive Director can give you especially useful information from the APA Database . Be forewarned, however, that others can only help. You and your colleagues must be willing to work aggressively not only to escape the immediate threat but also to build for the long term.
