The PPRC purports that “The proposed reimagination of the academic structure at TU is bold.” Agreed. The plan is not only bold, but also brazen and reckless. The plan’s publication alone has already begun to tarnish the reputation of a great institution. Of the undergraduate higher education institutions that, like TU, sit on a one billion dollar endowment or greater, a full 99% of these institutions offer undergraduate majors in philosophy. If, as the report indicates, cost-cutting is truly a motivation here, then it is apparent that something is amiss at the University of Tulsa.
