The university’s sociology department is facing a significant budget shortfall, and some researchers have warned the university is headed in the wrong direction.
But the question of where the department should go next remains unanswered.
That question came up again this week in an op-ed by professor of sociology John J. Sullivan, in which he discussed the implications of the department’s current financial straits.
The paper was written in response to a question by The Associated Press and was published Monday, Oct. 17.
The article, which is excerpted below, discusses the university’s current funding situation, as well as how the department is grappling with how to maintain its research.
The AP also obtained the op-age copy of the paper.
It is based on a public hearing Sullivan held this week at Northwestern University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Sullivan’s concerns are based on the university providing some of its $25 million budget to the Sociology Research and Education Fund (SREF), which was created by a $5.5 billion federal grant in 2016.
The fund is intended to support academic research in sociological fields, including social work and psychology, and it is expected to provide nearly $20 million in funding to the university this fiscal year.
Sullivan is critical of the SREF, which he said is a way for Northwestern to use money from a $25 billion grant to supplement its existing budget.
He said he was concerned that the SREC was only used to provide a small amount of funding for the sociology department.
Sullivan wrote that the department was also not able to fully fund the department and that the fund was not funded in an “economically responsible” way, as required by federal law.
“What is being proposed is a return to the past,” Sullivan wrote.
“We have to think long and hard about what we are doing.
I believe in a sociology department that is independent of the larger institution.
I also believe that the economics and business of sociology are not as clear cut as the humanities and the social sciences.”
Sullivan’s op-ing has sparked debate.
Several professors and students at Northwestern and other institutions have also criticized Sullivan for his views.
Some have called for him to resign.
Northwestern released a statement Monday saying that the paper was a “factually inaccurate and inaccurate critique” of Sullivan’s department and was not representative of the university.
Sullivan said he is confident that his department will continue to do research and will “do so in an economically responsible manner.”
He said that he believes that he has a responsibility to the sociology program and to the students who are our students.
“I want to be very clear about what I mean by this,” Sullivan said.
“This is not an attack on the students or faculty who work in our department.
This is an attack against my institution and its leaders.”
Sullivan said that his university has been working to fund the sociology research it needs, and he has not heard from any of the faculty members or students who were upset with the op to which he was referring.
He wrote that he is a supporter of free speech and that he hopes the university “does not need to do this.”
He added that he did not intend to make “any assumptions” about any of his students and that “this is a personal attack” against Northwestern and its professors.
Northwestern has been one of the top universities in the country in research funding.
In fiscal year 2017, the university received $7.2 billion in funding, and that figure rose to $13.1 billion in fiscal year 2018.
The university said that its total research and educational spending increased by about $5 billion.
Sullivan has said that some of the research is “very relevant and very important” and that others are not.
“The department has a huge role to play in society, and I have always felt that it was important to understand that,” Sullivan told the AP.
“But we have a huge budget shortfall in the sociology division and we’re not making good use of that money.”
Sullivan is an adjunct professor in sociology and co-director of the Sociological Research and Exploration Center, or SREC.
The SRED is a non-profit that coordinates research and development for social justice issues.
Northwestern received $6.5 million in federal funding to expand its core research and support programs.
The department is required by law to use at least 30 percent of that funding for research and to use the rest to fund programs such as classes, seminars, graduate fellowships, student stipends, and graduate studentships.
The school has also set aside $4.2 million for the department to increase its capacity and create a new research center.
“As the chief of the sociology unit, I am deeply concerned that we do not have the resources to meet our academic mission and our graduate students and faculty goals,” Sullivan, a sociology major, wrote in his op-al.
“If we do, we will continue our research and teaching in an independent way that is
