Connecticut’s ‘Skeletal’ Public Higher Ed Funding Rally: Thursday, October 12, 2023.

5:00 – 6:00 PM

UConn-AAUP leadership and our SEBAC partners are focused on reversing Governor Lamont’s and the legislative decision to reduce funding and staffing for higher education institutions in the second year of the biennium budget. Join us at the Capitol as we unveil the “bare bones” Halloween-themed program to advocate for increased funding supporting students throughout our public higher education institutions. This is a higher education SEBAC event that requires faculty and staff support. UConn-AAUP needs to be there in force. Show up with your UConn-AAUP t-shirt. PDF Flyer (and to register to let us know you are coming!) If you don’t yet have a t-shirt- let Gina know and she will bring one for you!
