Welcome back and call your state senator today or tomorrow

2/6/2018

Dear Colleagues:

We usually have a welcome back letter at the beginning of the semester, with events of interest, but so many things occurred, we never did.  So please let me belatedly welcome new faculty and librarians to campus and for those who are returning, welcome you back to campus.  We will have more information shortly on the progress of bargaining and on the latest parking fee increase proposal from the Administration. In the meantime, here is the latest:

Update on parking fee proposal
