Help Support UE Faculty Achieve Shared Governance!

October 12, 2020 / PSU-AAUP

From Save UE:


Shortly before fall classes at the University of Evansville in Indiana, UE President told faculty about planned cuts, the exact details of which still are being determined. Repeated requests from faculty for a seat at the table have gone unmet. UE’s administration has said it intends to conduct its cuts with no significant involvement from faculty and has also refused to share any data or criteria for making these cuts with faculty members. 
 
In response, the majority of the UE faculty has joined the AAUP and launched a campaign called Save UE! This campaign has two goals. The first is to inform the entire UE community of the impact such cuts would have on the academic quality of a school recently named one of the top five Regional Universities in the Midwest by US News and World Report. The second goal of the campaign is to give faculty members a voice in shaping the cuts. This would allow them to work to minimize the impact of those cuts on students and the overall academic quality of the university.
