Last week during spring break, the president decided, or decided it should be known that she’d decided, to move the Writing Center and other academic support, including counseling, out of the building they’re in. Instead of a week to recoup and organize while students were gone, the Writing Center staff and others had to pack. Or were packed, it’s not clear to me since there is no direct communication, just word of mouth. There is no new location for the Writing Center. The rest of the services, I don’t know. The president and no one around her thought about where to put these support services, to put these support services somewhere at all, while whatever, if anything, is done to the building. Meanwhile, D’oh students, who need academic support, who need a writing center, and have only a quarter of the writing center they need and deserve as it is, have nothing.

Dr. DSN, the chair, recently mouthed off in a meeting. His cousin works in the Writing Center.
