The Point: Platforms


In which we consider some of the complexities of censorship is this moment of Zoom.

Greetings, Colleagues:

FSU Executive Committee Meeting today, 4-5:30


Dear FSU Members,

The FSU Executive Committee will be meeting TODAY Friday from 4-5:30 pm.

These meetings are open to all members.  (Contact the FSU or Steve Striffler for Zoom info).

The meetings tend to be a mix of routine, keep-the-trains-running, agenda items along with more substantive discussion about the larger issues facing faculty and librarians.   This week we will be talking about FSU Forums, outreach to members, and other issues.

UMass Budget - Good News and Action to Defend Higher Ed


Dear FSU Members,

The good news is that Governor Baker is proposing to level-fund public higher education!  This is a product of the campaign that the MTA – ourselves – has carried out during the past months.

If Baker’s budget proposal passes, almost every campus gets the same as the Governor proposed back in January, which was essentially level over FY2020.  UMass gets a little cut from Baker’s original FY2021 budget, but it is still higher than FY2020. (MTA is looking into why UMass got a bit less than originally proposed).
