Wheeling Jesuit University Slashing Programs and Faculty in Effort to Survive

Wheeling Jesuit University Slashing Programs and Faculty in Effort to Survive

“We will work with every student to complete their education”

It’s amazing how quickly so many small schools are scrambling to stay afloat or closing. The reckoning is here.

Morning Journal reports:

Wheeling Jesuit slashes all but 11 programs, sports to remain

While around 30 programs were offered this school year at Wheeling Jesuit University, only 11 will be offered for students who choose to return next year.

Sports programs, however, will continue, university officials said.

Thursday afternoon, WJU gathered its students and employees together in the McDonough Center to share more details for Academic Year 2019-2020. At that meeting, president Michael P. Mihalyo Jr. announced that WJU will offer the following academic programs starting with the fall 2019 semester: nursing, respiratory therapy, exercise science, education, business, criminal justice, psychology, doctor of physical therapy, master of business administration, master of arts in education, and master of science in nursing.

Current students in majors no longer offered in fall 2019 will receive information on how to develop a plan of study that will lead to their degree.

“We will work with every student to complete their education,” Mihalyo said. “While we hope that completion will lead to a WJU degree, we will also assist those who wish to transfer to another institution.”

Courses which WJU will discontinue next year include all language, communication, and fine arts programs, history, political science and all philosophy and theology programs.

Interesting choices.

This is actually very sad. They are continuing their vocational programs, but are eliminating all of their liberal arts programs. They are cutting right to the bone. I looked online, and they don’t seem to have any “identity studies” garbage courses to cut. This is not a school that has implemented SJW indoctrination, yet it is in dire straits. Very sad.
