Univ. of Newcastle (Australia) to abolish Philosophy Major

Disturbing news from a colleague in Australia:

This is Yin Gao from the University of Newcastle, Australia. I have been teaching Chinese philosophy in this institution for over 15 years. I am afraid I have a rather bad news. My school decided to abolish philosophy major:

I wonder if you would announce the news here. My colleagues and I are dismayed by this decision. Currently, this proposed change is still under consultation. Any support from anyone would be much appreciated. They can send their comment to the following link:
Ruth.Hartmann@newcastle.edu.au or email me at my email as listed here.
UoN receive submission until Friday the 22nd of Sept [updated]. However, any comment after this date would still means a lot to us.

    Dear Steve:

    Thank you very much. Much appreciated.
    The Union got submission date extended to this Friday, the 22nd. Would you please update the submission date in this announcement? By the way, I would also like to become a contributor to this page, I wonder what should I do to become one?

    Best wishes
