Petition to save the Geometry group at VU Amsterdam

Filed under: Misc. — Jesse Johnson @ 1:50 pm

The VU University Amsterdam is planning a restructuring that will eliminate the geometry and topology group, eliminating four tenured faculty.  The Secret Blogging Seminar has posted a letter from Tilman Bauer explaining the situation.  You can read and sign the petition here.  If the petition shows the univeristy that this action will be highly publicized and cause permanent damage to their reputation, they may be forced to reconsider.
