Campus Equity Week coming to CSU & nation’s campuses, Oct 28-Nov 2

Faculty organizations across the U.S., including on most CSU campuses, are preparing for a week of programs, lectures and more to speak out on issues undermining higher education on our campuses.

The national Campus Equity Week web site calls on each campus community to “Stand up-Speak out-Organize” about working and learning conditions in academia.
Among the pressing issues are…
• Moving toward a 2-tier system—in-person teachers for the elite, computers for the rest of us
• Making more and more faculty teaching jobs temporary, often at lower pay and no benefits
• Privatizing higher education—finding ways for profiteers to take over
Equity is needed on all these issues and more. Help bring the faculty voice in to the national debate.

Among the events planned on CSU campuses is a video showing at San Jose of the play “For Profit” about being a recruiter of students for a private edu-business institution. A panel discussion at Los Angeles will feature the author of “The Assault on Public Education,” William Watkins of the U. of Illinois.
