Dear Colleague,

We have been following two issues that we would like to update you on:

NTT Layoffs:  At the “Open Meeting to Strengthen the Budget Process” on May 12, the Administration stated the following:

● Notices of non-reappointments will be sent to all NTTs who are Associate Lecturers and to Lecturers with semester by semester appointments.  Some may be re-hired this summer, but this will obviously difficult to NTTs to plan their lives. 

● The University will raise the student/faculty ratio.
