That was one of the better threads here in a long time. While some was snarky it mostly dealt with departmental issues and avoided personal attacks.
what happened to the does Chong leaving mean Northwestern a sinking department thread?(4 posts) (1 voice)
Chong's departure means no diversity in the faculty, while NW makes huge profits from recruiting minority students who consist of over 35% of the entire student body (
http://www.northwestern.edu/about/northwestern-at-a-glance/students.html). The pol sci dept is a disservice to the university and to the Asian American community.
^ This is fine. Then NW should stop making lots of money from minority students and consequently go bankcrupt.
The enrollment trends at NU can be directly attributed to the Department Chair, Jamie Farr.
He spent time as a youth in Asia and developed a certain appreciation and fondness for the civilian population.
