Plan Would Eliminate Women’s Studies Department at UNLV

The College of Liberal Arts at the University of Nevada Las Vegas is facing a $1.64 million cut in its budget. Originally, the departments of philosophy and women’s studies were to be eliminated to make up part of the funding shortfall. But a new proposal will retain the philosophy department but eliminate nontenured faculty positions in anthropology, sociology, and philosophy. The women’s studies department would still be eliminated. The board of regents of the Nevada System of Higher Education must approve the plan.
