  • Unanimous Vote: Part-time Faculty Emerson College’s Los Angeles Campus Win Union Representation | AAUP
    Association of University Professors The vote was 16 0 We decided to form a union because we felt that we were not being treated the same as other faculty who work for Emerson College in Boston said Jennifer Vandever who has taught in the Los Angeles program for 14 years Now we will be on a level playing field and we hope that some of the disparities can be addressed The LA faculty stand united and hope to work with the administration to quickly find common ground Faculty at the Emerson LA campus teach the same students offer classes for credits towards the same degrees and are employed by the same institution as the members of the Affiliated Faculty of Emerson College AAUP Chapter at the Boston campus Faculty in Los Angeles seek the same treatment as part time faculty in Boston We are very proud and thrilled that these faculty members have chosen to form a union and be represented by the AAUP said Howard Bunsis the chair of the AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress Our colleagues will join their 300 coworkers who teach part time at the Boston campus who are already represented by the AAUP and we look forward to ensuring that these new members have a voice in the process and a seat at the table Emerson LA relies heavily on part time instructors Of its faculty approximately 95 percent is part time compared with 56 percent at Emerson s Boston campus and the national average of 48 A1 percent In addition to teaching classes Emerson L A s faculty participates in devising curriculum provides outreach to the Los Angeles creative and intellectual community and also participates in long term institutional planning The Emerson LA faculty was a significant contributor to the success of Emerson College s

  • University of Iowa President Search Subject of Governance Investigation | AAUP
    image of transformative leadership Once this person was identified what followed was only an illusion of an open honest search Harreld was appointed as president above three other vastly more qualified candidates The board acted throughout in bad faith and not only toward the faculty The board allowed prominent administrators from major higher education institutions to believe they were candidates in an open honest search when the process in actuality was being manipulated to reach a foreordained result In this the board seriously disserved the people of the state as well as the institution to which it owes the highest standard of care The AAUP investigating committee submitted a draft report to both the governing board and to President Bruce Harreld The Board of Regents responded that it believes it ran a fair and transparent search process and that it is advised by legal counsel against providing additional comment due to a matter of pending litigation Responding to drafts of the report made available President Harreld responded I believe the discovery process was professionally executed and find the report to be accurate from my perspective Thus I have no comments to add to the draft report As I move forward as the president of the University of Iowa please know I will continue to respect and engage in the shared governance of this institution as I pledged to do before assuming my duties and as I have done so far in my first two weeks here While the report portrays the search as at bottom nothing less than a crude exercise in naked power it concludes We believe that it would better serve the interests of faculty and the university to take President Harreld at his word while also being vigilant and prepared to act to maintain academic integrity and

  • Governance Violations at Union County College | AAUP
    and to report on the situation President Margaret M McMenamin however declined to meet with Gorman as did the chairs of the college s two governing boards The report details how McMenamin sharply diminished the role and influence of the faculty in the college s governance system Though governance is not a mandatory subject of collective bargaining under New Jersey law administrations of other public New Jersey institutions of higher education voluntarily agree to include provisions on faculty governance in the collective bargaining agreement or in the faculty handbook In contrast the McMenamin administration petitioned the state s Public Employment Relations Commission in a successful effort to remove all such provisions from the collective bargaining agreement and halt the long standing practices they supported The AAUP supports standards of governance that were jointly formulated with the American Council on Education and the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges They call for adequate communication and joint planning and effort by the governing board administration and faculty in carrying out the wide variety of interrelated complex tasks that colleges and universities must perform The areas in which the faculty should exercise primary responsibility include curriculum subject matter and methods of instruction and faculty personnel decisions such as appointments reappointments decisions not to reappoint promotions the granting of tenure and dismissal The report finds that the UCC administration violated these standards in multiple ways characterizing the following violations as particularly reprehensible Eliminating key faculty committees and restricting the faculty role in selecting representatives to remaining committees Replacing departments that had chairs elected by the faculty with divisions headed by administration selected deans Severely restricting the faculty role in decisions related to appointment reappointment promotion and tenure Refusing to engage in any discussion of governance matters Creating an atmosphere of fear intimidation

  • Brief Supports Academic Freedom in Research | AAUP
    case involves a lawsuit filed by the Energy Environment Legal Institute a free market legal foundation which is using public records requests in a campaign against climate science E E submitted public records requests that targeted two University of Arizona faculty members climate researchers Malcolm Hughes and Jonathan Overpeck The request sought e mails authored by or addressed or copied to them E E previously known as the American Tradition Institute has brought similar cases involving public records requests of faculty members and vows to keep peppering universities around the country with similar requests The AAUP s brief supports the university and the scientists It argues that the research records should be protected from disclosure since compelled disclosure of prepublication communications and other unpublished academic research materials would have a severe chilling effect on intellectual debate among researchers and scientists This is an important case to protect faculty members academic freedom to engage in research which depends on their ability to freely communicate with colleagues and to test and debate ideas and theories says AAUP general counsel Risa Lieberwitz One key consideration under Arizona law is whether disclosure is in the best interests of the state The brief advises the court to consider the best interests of the state to maintain a free and vital university system which depends on the protection of academic freedom to engage in the scientific debate necessary to create high quality academic research The case was originally heard by the Superior Court in Pima County Arizona in late 2014 The AAUP filed an amicus brief in the lower court and in March 2015 the court ruled that the university did not have to disclose the records The decision noted that the argument regarding the potential chilling effect of the disclosures was key to the decision
