Message From the FSU Grievance Committee Regarding Student Over Enrollments


Dear Colleague,

The FSU Grievance Committee (GC) was made aware of a few instances of students being admitted to courses without the approval of the instructor of record despite those courses having already been at capacity (according to Article 15.4 of the contract, once the student capacities for a course are announced, only the instructor of record may add additional students). In some cases, the course cap was changed on WISER to allow additional students to register. Because there was more than one alleged violation of this clause of the contract, the GC decided to file a policy grievance (in essence, a grievance alleging multiple violations.) A broader update on grievance and contract related matters will be sent to FSU members shortly (previous updates on grievance matters can be seen here).

If your course for Spring 19 had students added above the stated course capacities without your permission, or the course cap was raised after it was announced, please let us know so we can be sure to include this information in our grievance.

If you have any questions, please contact the FSU office.

Caroline Coscia, Senior Lecturer II, Political Science

Ellen Frank, Senior Lecturer, Economics

Mickey Gallagher, MTA Consultant
