Action Alert! Stop FSU School of Chiropractic

Jan. 27, 2005: FSU chiropractic school DEFEATED!

which makes the following a part of history! Here you'll find documentation of the discussions and news reports:



Action Alert! Stop FSU School of Chiropractic

Now is the time to make a concerted and united effort to stop the planned FSU School of Chiropractic. Florida State University is on the fast track to becoming Quack U..

Its reputation has already been seriously tarnished, thanks to an aggressive and manipulative chiropractic politician, Florida Senate Majority Leader Dennis Jones, DC, R-Seminole. Unfortunately no one had the guts to say "No!" to him.

If the Board of Governors fails to understand the seriousness of this attempt to sneak quackery into the university system, they will cause irreparable damage, not only to the university's reputation, but to the educational system. They will open a Pandora's box by giving chiropractic an undeserved appearance of legitimacy.

Now is the time for skeptics of pseudoscience and quackery to publicly do what they can to stop the plans to build the proposed FSU School of Chiropractic Medicine (an obvious oxymoron) at the new

FSU School of Pseudoscience.


[Times art]
To poke fun at Florida State University's bid for a chiropractic school, an FSU professor has created a new campus map. Opponents of the proposed school say more than 500 faculty members have signed petitions against it. (source)


The following is from a great blog that covers this situation from the local battlefield:

FSU Chiropractic Proposal Goes National

Each day this issue is in the national news it will damage FSU's reputation in the scientific community, and detract from the real science going on at FSU's campus. Florida's state-wide Board of Governors will have an opportunity to put an end to this proposal -- which the faculty does not want and which the FSU administration has refused to endorse -- when it meets later this month.

Since FSU's administration has affirmatively refused to take a position on the proposal (which, oddly, it drafted). The issue is now in the hands of the Florida Board of Governors (which will vote on whether the proposal will continue at FSU).

The above was written by the anonymous blogger of FSUblius.
