Official Statements from the Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees at its January 25, 2013, meeting carefully reviewed the events surrounding the announcement that Dr. Carl Ruby would conclude his service to Cedarville University. The Board acknowledges and regrets how lack of clarity has made this transition even more difficult for the Cedarville University family. Nonetheless, the Board of Trustees supports the understanding between Dr. Ruby and the administration. The Board of Trustees wishes to express gratitude to Dr. Carl Ruby for his service to Cedarville University.
The Board also approved the recommendation of the Academic Council to conclude both the B.A. in Physics and the B.A. in Philosophy programs. In line with the University’s stated objective to equip Cedarville graduates who think broadly and deeply, the Board affirmed that the philosophy minor should continue and be strengthened, that philosophy courses will be available to all students as part of general education, and that the Honors program should continue to be a priority. All current philosophy majors will be able to complete their programs, as required by our regional accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
