Sign the Student and Faculty Petitions

January 22, 2024

On Tuesday, January 16, 2024, UNC Greensboro's Chancellor announced that several academic departments, including Religious Studies, were facing termination. The final decision to decide the future of the department is set for February 1, 2024. 

Leaders from the American Academy of Religion delivered a letter to UNCG's Chancellor and Provost today urging them to reconsider their plans. You can read it here

UNCG students and faculty have created petitions to fight for the preservation of this department "in recognition of the enormous value these [religious studies] courses have for both UNCG students and the broader community." 

Please consider supporting them and the larger mission of sustaining and protecting the academic study of religion.
