UConn-AAUP Members Stand Up

UConn-AAUP Forms Organizing Committee

The Organizing Committee’s charge is to develop a plan of action to resist UConn’s budget cuts and advocate for robust investment in public higher ed across Connecticut. We’ll be developing plans for a social media strategy, direct actions, legislative advocacy, info sheets to share with our members, facilitating Op-Ed writing sessions and trainings, prepping folks to provide testimony to the General Assembly, organizing letter-writing campaigns, crafting press releases, holding rallies, and more. The OC will be the group that develops the Union’s collective action plan in response to this budget crisis.

All are welcome & attendance is not required at every meeting to be a valued member of the committee. Contact Gina at ginadb@uconnaaup.org to learn more.

Take ACTION NOW

UConn-AAUP Encourages all members to get involved! Contact Governor Lamont and your State Legislative Leaders to demand more permanent funding for higher education.  Continue to demand transparency & accountability from UConn Administration.  We will add resources and events to this page as they are created!
