SAVE THE DATE and BE THERE: UPI Membership Conference, Friday, 9/5 10:00-2:00

Dear all:

Welcome to the new school year, and please get out your calendars and save this date.

UPI very much needs to ask that you make these sessions a priority.

Not to worry! Friday meetings will not be a trend. But we have tons of ground we need to cover together to get the semester started. Be there. Bring others. And many thanks for the extra effort of getting in on a Friday.

In solidarity,


UPI 3-Part Membership Conference – Friday, 5 September 10:00-2:00

(1) Introduction and Update on Negotiations 10:00-11:15 in Golden Eagles

In addition to giving you an update, the team has questions to confirm about the direction they are taking. They have been working off of the Constituency Meetings, initial and secondary surveys, and now need further collective input.


(2) A Discussion of Faculty Governance Broadly 11:30-12:30 in Golden Eagles

Deliberation on the direction of the university and our role in protecting the mission of access and excellence.


(3) OFF CAMPUS – Political Report from UPI 4100 Legislative Chair John Miller 12:45 – 2:00 at Hunan Wok, 3411 West Bryn Mawr

We will have finger food to snack on, get a report from John that would violate the Ethics Act on campus, and support our neighborhood restaurant.
