Congratulations, Michelle!

  1. Dear Mr. Chatelain,

    I am writing on behalf of the Louisiana Foreign Language Teachers’ Association to communicate our dismay over the decision to end the programs of Classics, Latin, and German at LSU. This resolution compromises LSU’s academic leadership in the state of Louisiana and its national and even international reputation as an outstanding flagship institution of higher learning. The decision to delete these degree programs for financial reasons is difficult to understand. They are among the least costly to maintain and the most hallowed in the traditions of great universities.

    Surely there must be a way to support degrees in these disciplines until brighter financial days come our way, even if some reduction in course offerings is deemed necessary. LSU’s reputation as an academic leader stands to suffer greatly if these programs are terminated. The entire state will be academically poorer, bereft of the leadership and support of the flagship university in these esteemed disciplines.
