City College to stop funding long-standing literary program

No longer news; Megan Randolph reported on Santa Barbara City College at The Channels. After the faculty member overseeing the Great Books program retired, the program will be ended after one more year, and
"the college decided not to allow the program to apply for private grants after the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

"'We didn’t have a full-time faculty member taking over the Great Books program,' said Alice Sharper Perez, dean of fine arts. 'And the Apgar grant requires that we also contribute some funds from the general district budget, which we’re not able to do at this time. We have a lot of programs.'"
