An opinion article published by slate.com, A Ghost Town with a Quad, on Nov. 26, 2013 discusses university wide conversations at MSU Moorhead to adjust the numbers of its faculty members to a student body that has declined 10.9 percent since 2010. The article suggests that MSUM will soon have no departments of English, physics, or history and names several other programs likely to be eliminated, including political science, philosophy, and computer science. In truth, none of these programs will be eliminated as a result of the program prioritization process, though all will be examined for possible reconfiguration and curricular efficiencies.
