DO THIS! Budget Discussion Brown Bags with the Administration

Dear all,

I am forwarding the dates and times of the brown bag discussions planned by the administration. Please note that several are during spring break, and plan around this if you are going to be away.

It is vital that as many of us go to as many of these discussions as possible. Please commit to one session with each vice president.

I think these will be good events to buddy up on: take a couple of friends. I like the idea of taking colleagues with whom you often disagree on university matters to help spark insight and meaningful conversation. My experience–and the experience of the negotiations team–has been that our administration really needs to hear from us. We have an expertise and knowledge that is often deeper in terms of the richness of the data we command and can present.

Please do this!

And many thanks for all of the work in support of our students and quality learning that you do every day at NEIU.

In solidarity,

Sophia
