After a successful career in advertising, Cynthia Tan returned to her alma mater to teach. But nothing she learned in school, or subsequently in the topsy turvy world of Madison Avenue, could have prepared her for the toxic sandbox of academic politics. When she and her mentor, current department chair Dana Cutter-Davis, come to blows over naive foreign student Geena, their battle has serious repercussions for Cynthia, for Dana, for Geena, and for the reputation of the school. Major Divisions is a drama that takes a probing look into the higher education system in the United States, asking "how can one take the ethical high road, when ethics don't really matter?"
