This could be considered as a third part to the two-article series by the authors titled "The Department You Save May Be Your Own." This article explores what needs to go on in the geologic and scientific communities to support geoscience departments so that they do not fall victim to the academic chopping block. The authors describe what is needed in the community and then look at the statistics of department closings in recent years.
