Oh. You are talking about the humanities, I was in the engineering side of things. I always found those people to be a little on the impractical side. We did have the odd person that was freed up from their course load but they were doing research. There was a big stink going down about the time I left about the administration pushing the staff to take on research and development, 'Partnering with Industry', so they can get the dollars that went with it. As one instructor said, they want to rent us out to do the same work we did in industry but at a lower wage.

Bit of a difference between WWII and Iraq, Afghanistan. Hard to justify not meeting financial obligations and saddling the cost to future generations while the economy was humming along as strong as it was before 2008. If that was not considered good times (economically speaking) I do not know what was.
