Adrian College president: Humanities programs will not be cut

Kudos to Adrian College president Jeffrey Docking.

As MLive.com explains, he listened to critics who said his plan to cut humanities programs was wrong, and he changed his mind.

Docking said he received a lot of well-articulated and passionate feedback asking the college to reconsider its decision, which helped convince him to go in a different direction.

“Honestly, it is unlike me to reverse a decision of this magnitude but I honestly believe that part of leadership involves listening, flexibility, empathy, and a willingness to hear and respect other opinions. I have tried to do this here,” Docking said.
