Open Letter to Students, Faculty, Alumni and Friends of Ithaca College
Higher education in America is facing an existential crisis. The prohibitive cost of college education has barred an increasing number of young people from fulfilling their dreams, while for a majority of faculty, being a professor has become a dead-end job that offers no adequate pay, no job security, and no possibilities for advancement. While administrative salaries have soared, faculty compensation overall has decreased, and the percentage of tenure-eligible faculty has shrunk to under 30%. The result has been the creation of a new academic underclass: a “precariate” of demoralized and underpaid contingent professors who are forced to cobble together multiple jobs, do not have benefits, and sometimes have to rely on manual labor, food stamps or Medicaid to get by.

From Senior Vice President Nancy Pringle, Provost Linda Petrosino, and Professor Gwen Seaquist, representatives of the Ithaca College bargaining committee.
The Ithaca College bargaining team is disappointed to hear of the part-time, per-course faculty union’s announcement that it plans to conduct a strike authorization vote on February 13 and 14. Significant and meaningful progress has been made to date in the negotiations for a part-time faculty contract. There is a planned bargaining session with a federal mediator set for February 21 to discuss the college’s most recent wage proposal, as well as another bargaining session with the mediator scheduled for February 24.
