National AAUP President and Professor Emeritus (Economics) Rudy Fichtebaum addressed the Executive Committee and the membership to jump start contract negotiations set to begin on Friday 9-11-15. The talk focused on the neoliberal attack on higher education and AAUP’s role in responding to the crisis. The talk was livestreamed but can now be watched on demand at https://mediasite.dl.uconn.edu/Mediasite/Play/9578a26cb60d4cc0aa3a716420c83b321d.
Whether you get a chance to watch it or not, think about taking a “selfie” like the faculty members below did at the lecture. We hope to get them on this website and Facebook to show that the faculty are supportive of the UCONN-AAUP’s efforts to get a better contract to protect faculty rights.
