College of Saint Rose Faculty Summit Called

Last Updated : Tue 4th October 2016 03:10pm

The College of Saint Rose calls for a Faculty Summit with colleagues from Sage, Union, Siena, and hopefully other area schools on October 21, 6-8pm at The College of Saint Rose Campus and Activities Center (right next to 432 Western Avenue, Albany, NY 12203).

Please spread the word and bring colleagues--all ranks, adjuncts, retired, and other organizers welcomed, from all schools.  The agenda will be to offer an update on the status of faculty in higher education, share information about our institutions, and to form plans of action to create solidarity and to take action to resist the corporatization of our colleges and universities.  I look forward to seeing you and your colleagues there.
