Sample text

But even at that first meeting, the issues seemed clear enough. There were only three ways to increase the percentage of tenure-track faculty teaching composition: insist that more faculty teach it, hire new faculty to teach it, and/or reduce the number of sections we offer. The first two options meant increasing the size of an already large department—forty tenure-track Origins of the Department 25 faculty, twelve full-time visitors, and twenty-five to thirty part-time adjuncts—so the department also had to discuss ways of administering a department that had grown well beyond what any faculty could have imagined only ten or twelve years earlier.

During the vote on the models, Model I (with program directors) garnered twenty votes; Model II (two different departments) received fifteen; and Model III (one school overseeing two related departments) got twenty-one. When faculty were asked their preference about their second choice, Model I had thirty votes; Model II, twenty-seven; and Model III, forty. Model III won because most of the faculty had selected it as their first or second choice; the clear loser involved the creation of two independent units that weren’t linked under one school.

The need to defend academic writing and professional writing as “liberal arts” surprised us, for those of us in rhetoric and composition, from our earliest training in the field, have understood the continuity academic, public, and workplace discourse has with the oldest of the ancient liberal arts. For twenty-five hundred years, nobody would have thought to consider rhetoric and writing as anything but rooted in the liberal arts tradition. This contrary position among several literature faculty (who, in self-contradiction, apparently had no reservations about the place of communications studies in the liberal arts or a theater program separate from English) revealed their deep biases against any education with practical dimensions and worldly affections.
