Re: RESOURCE> Graduate Programs in Buddhist Studies (about being listed)

Dear Colleagues,

After posting the notice about our graduate programs listing, we have received a couple of messages of complaint about this or that program not being listed, as if some programs were deliberately being singled out for rejection.

Please understand: we did not go out and procure this list of institutions--the list has been created entirely based on information that has been sent to us from representatives of the institutions. So if there is a program that you think should be listed, just give us the name of the program and the URL, and we'll gladly add it.
