Please take note of an urgent appeal issued by the Department of Classics of Vermont University (Universitas Viridis Montis):

"Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We would be very grateful if you would sign our petition to reverse the 50% cut to Classics that the University of Vermont (UVM) has suffered in the last three years through an austerity regime of unreplaced retirements and rolling lecturer terminations. UVM is now undergoing an administrative change—influenced in part by campus-wide protests to humanities cutbacks—and we hope to prevail upon the incoming president (Suresh Garimella, currently Provost at Purdue) to restore us to the 2015 staffing level that was already deemed minimal by our external program review that same year (conducted by Jeffery Henderson and Richard Thomas).

Yours hopefully,

The Department of Classics, Universitas Viridis Montis"
