San Francisco State’s president, forced to cut the budget, is threatening to close the School of Engineering, writes Debra Saunders in the Chronicle. Raza Studies, Recreational and Leisure Studies and Women Studies would remain, preparing students for . . . Well, leisure studies will come in handy for the permanently unemployed.
My fave: The Institute on Sexuality, Social Inequality and Health.
It makes you wonder if the guys in Engineering should rename their discipline. You know, call it The School of Engineering, Structural Inequality and Disparity Dynamics. Even better: The School of Social Engineering. Then maybe engineering wouldn’t be expendable.
Some 700 engineering students would be out of luck if SF State dumps the department.
