Instructors – Facing summer session cuts: How can we build pressure on the administration to create the changes we want to see?
Researchers – Ensuring our contribution to PSU is recognized: Some of us train, mentor and supervise student workers. Some of us build connections with community stakeholders. How can we ensure the value that researchers bring to PSU is fully recognized?
