Dear Professor Foskett,

I am shocked to hear that you are proposing to close the renowned Centre
for Professional Ethics at Keele. This is a very distinctive and
distinguished Centre that focusses on an area of increasing importance in
an age of complexity and change, and I can't help thinking that
this is a short-sighted and ultimately self-wounding move. You have
something in the Centre that few other UK Universities can match and I
very much hope that rather than closing it, you might consider enhancing
it and enabling it to do more work of the kind that it has done in the
past. I know that we are living in hard times with difficult choices to
make, but could I please ask you to think seriously about whether or not
this is a wise move? Nationally, we need this Centre and its academics.
