Dear Students and Colleagues,

Today at negotiations we won everything:  a significant pay increase for PT faculty, more stable appointments for FT contingent faculty, and maintaining our voice as one union for both part-time and full-time contingent faculty.  We are very pleased to announce that on the eve of our strike, the administration met all our demands. We have tentatively agreed to a collective bargaining agreement that we are extremely proud of.  Let us be clear, none of this would have happened without the campus community coming together in overwhelming numbers to demand justice for our profession, our students and our college.

Education Studies students presented a paper investigating racial comedy in college teaching at the University of Pennsylvania’s Ethnography in Education Research Forum in Philadelphia last month. Stephanie Graziano (’17 Speech Language Pathology & Audiology), Alec J. Tucker (’17 History, Theater), Kevin Guevara (’17 English) and Dr. Ellie Fitts Fulmer (Education) presented their work, titled “Laughing at the Truth: Investigating Racial Comedy in Anti-Racist Teacher Education” as part of a data analysis workshop alongside advanced doctoral students and early career faculty members. Their work explores the strengths and drawbacks of using racial comedy media in teacher education. The analysis in this session extended the work of this undergraduate research team’s efforts towards forming an architecture of racial comedy pedagogy for anti-racist education, looking closely at the imperfections and controversies embedded in it. The student research team will present the next iteration of their work at the Whalen Symposium on April 13.

Dear Students and Colleagues,

On Sunday we go back to the bargaining table in one last attempt to reach a deal before we strike.  We do this on the heels of receiving support from our tenured colleagues and students who have committed in overwhelming numbers to strike with us.  We are intrigued to see that just as we are about to strike, the administration is suddenly beginning to make more serious proposals to improve the lives of contingent faculty. We should note that every single item the administration has proposed we have had to fight for, tooth and nail. While this represents two years of hard volunteer work from contingent faculty, the college has spent hundreds of thousands of student tuition dollars trying to prevent us from winning what they put in their latest proposal.
