In preparing for our next contract, there are three topics I maintain every faculty member should understand:
Shared Governance; Academic Freedom; and Workload
The Winter/Summer Session salary reopener agreement has been approved with overwhelming member support. Salaries are going up for PTLs, TAs, and outside instructors.

Twenty Part-Time Lecturers have been awarded professional development funds in the 2014 round for this fund. The announcement letters were sent out to every PTL who appplied from President Barchi's office on February 10, 2014.
