Latin in Danger of Being Cut at Centenary College

LCA has learned that the president of Centenary College will recommend that the Latin program be eliminated from the Ancient & Modern Languages Department. He will be meeting with Centenary’s board of trustees on March 4th. If the recommendation is accepted by the trustees, Stephen Clark’s position will be phased out by the end of next academic year.

This news is especially disconcerting since it not only involves the elimination of a Latin program from Louisiana but also the loss of a fellow Classicist.

We ask LCA members to support the Latin program at Centenary and Stephen Clark in every way. Soon we will post a draft of a collective letter in support of continuing Latin at Centenary. Those who wish to sign this letter can e-mail Albert Watanabe at awatan AT lsu DOT edu and he will add your name to the letter. LCA would welcome other suggestions to help keep Latin at Centenary College.

posted on behalf of Albert Watanabe, Secretary-Treasurer of Louisiana Classical Association.  When emailing Albert, replace the correct symbols for AT and DOT.
