Dear UPI, Students, Faculty and Staff:
We are inviting you to a university-wide field trip! Students and faculty from across the state will be in Springfield on Thursday, April 27 for a Teach-Out for Higher Education.
All NEIU students attending are excused from class because your curriculum will be in the Statehouse on the 27th. Everyone is encouraged to bring family and friends–it will be great to have children there–but everyone must register to ride the bus! Kids, parents, friends significant others–we want each and all–but each of us has to follow the link below and sign up as an individual.
Buses will leave from Lot F on the NEIU Campus at 7:30 am for the day’s events in Springfield. Buses will leave Springfield at 3:00 pm to return to NEIU.
Here’s the link. Please sign-up asap!
NEIU/UPI wants to thank the American Federation of Teachers for their support–providing buses and in many other ways. And we want to thank the administration and all of the university for supporting this day of engaged learning.
