NEW TIME: FSU LGBTQIA+ Caucus, Wednesday 2/14 at 3:30pm

2/8/2024

Union Colleagues of the FSU LGBTQIA+ Caucus,

We invite everyone to a Zoom meeting to discuss LGBTQIA+ issues as a caucus and report back to the FSU and the Core Bargaining Team. We believe a synchronous Zoom experience can help us better know each other and amplify our collective needs, as well as accommodate people’s schedules and transportation needs. We hope you aren’t Zoom fatigued just yet!

FSU Nuts & Bolts: Elections, Sick Leave Bank, Canvas and Upcoming Events

2/5/2024

Dear Members,

I hope your first two weeks of classes are going well.  For early morning arrivals, sunrise is finally before 7AM! Monday, February 5th is truck day.  This is the day an eighteen-wheeler is stuffed with Red Sox equipment and leaves Fenway Park heading south to spring training. When baseball begins spring cannot be far away.

POSTPONED - FSU LGBTQIA+ Caucus, Thursday 2/8 at 2:00

2/1/2024

The FSU LGBTQIA+ Caucus meeting on February 8 has been postponed so as to not conflict with a WGSS candidate talk that has been scheduled for the same time. We are consulting with that department and will send out an update as soon as this caucus meeting has been rescheduled.

The Point: UMB and the Corporatized University

2/1/2024

Towards the end of last semester we at The Point came across an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education that captures so much of what is happening within higher ed that we decided to simply reprint it.  Although UMass Boston has (up until now) avoided some of the corporate incursions into higher education and concomitant disinvestment by the government, much of what follows hits far too close to home.  It highlights many of the dangers to avoid while suggesting alternative models for building a better system of higher education.
