I have heard rumors to the effect that the Philosophy program at USU is in jeopardy. It is not; there is no doubt in my mind that there will be a Philosophy major at USU for a very long time to come. What is true is that we are experiencing some loss of faculty. Kent Robson is retiring at the end of this year, and it is uncertain whether Professor Kleiner will be teaching in the program after this coming fall. Losing faculty, of course, is far from a good thing, and it is painful. But I do want to affirm that the Philosophy major itself is not in jeopardy or uncertain in any way.
