Spring 2018 cuts, May 20 rally, and other important updates from the FSU

Dear Colleague,

We want to update you on a number of important issues:

Course Cancellations for Spring 2018:  We are hearing that there are possibly more course cancellations in departments for the spring of 2018.  Let us know what is happening in your department, and how many fewer sections and/or faculty you may have, and the effects of these (higher course caps, more teaching CAPs or Navitas). 

BoT this Wed, courses reinstated, and other news

Dear Colleague,

Thanks to your help, we have good news to report on some cancelled courses getting reinstated. 

Good news!  Forty courses this summer that had been cancelled will be reinstated due to an agreement between the FSU and the Administration.  You will be hearing soon if you are teaching one of these courses. 

►Problems remain, however.  Please help us protest the cuts to courses and academic departments. 

Class cancellation petition and BoT protest next week

Dear Colleagues:

Course Cancellations:  We have heard from many of you that classes that are required for your major or that are full have or will be been cancelled.  Please protest this problem by signing the petition here that asks for transparency in the budget process, consultation with departments and faculty when classes are cancelled, and keeping classes that are required for majors or that always fill up.
