• Columbia College president Warrick L. Carter

This past week, Columbia College president Warrick L. Carter jeopardized the future of cinema studies courses at the school by writing in his prioritization report to the film and video department, “The department should carefully consider the ongoing role of Cinema Studies, including the possibility of eliminating it. Although I understand the department’s argument for retaining it as a generalist degree, I remain skeptical of its value to student learning and to the department.”
