The 2011 and 2009 Texas Biennial Budgets have severely cut support for Texas A&M University. (This has been well-documented in many newspapers.) As a result, our mathematics department has had to implement numerous cost-cutting measures. Most faculty (myself included), decided that giving up their office phones would be one of these measures. Should you need to get in touch with me, e-mail is the best option as I do check my e-mail quite frequently.
