MTA Higher Ed Forum for UMass Boston


Dear FSU Member,

On Wednesday, April 7th, from 12-1pm the MTA will be hosting a Forum on higher education for UMass Boston, Bunker Hill CC, Roxbury CC, and Mass College of Art.    (contact FSU or Steve Striffler for registration information).

We won level-funding from the legislature through July, overturning a veto by Governor Baker.  We have rolled back many of the furloughs and layoffs.  And we won over $400 million for our public campuses through the American Rescue Plan Act.  

There is still work to be done.  Please join this Forum to strategize on how we will use this moment to:

  • Reinvest in public higher education, as a core part of our racial and

    economic justice mission.
  • Support Adjuncts and Part-Time faculty in our bill for Adjunct Justice.
  • Link issues and take action in contract campaigns for justice and equity.


Steve Striffler

FSU President
