Dear FSU Members,

FSU Anti-Racism Funds – funded proposals


Dear FSU Members,

As you know, the FSU and university administration agreed in the last round of bargaining that $25,000 would be devoted to anti-racist initiatives in both year two and three of the contract.  Because bargaining did not conclude until the middle of year two of the contract, we were all under something of a time crunch to determine how this money was to be spent; for year two, it needs to happen this semester.

Supporting Non-Tenure Track Faculty at UMB and Beyond


Dear FSU Members,

We thought the following Webinar is particularly relevant to UMB.  It looks like a significant opportunity – and is free!


Action 3/24 - Public College Should Not be a Debt Sentence!


In past years, many UMB staff, faculty and students have enjoyed visiting the State House on the annual Spring Advocacy Day organized by PHENOM (Public Higher Ed Network of Massachusetts). PHENOM needs our help this year to move a critical piece of legislation reported out of committee by April 4th. S829/H1339, An Act to Guarantee Debt-Free Public Higher Education,” would guarantee every Massachusetts resident has a right to a public higher education free of tuition, fees, and student debt and covers all MA public higher ed institutions, including UMB.
