Tackling Austerity Budgets
The goal of this webinar is to demystify higher ed finance and prompt action. We want to emphasize that (1) austerity is not just about the loss of certain revenues and supposed shortfalls, but also about choices regarding how to use revenues, (2) TT and NTT faculty can get the skills and info to engage in budget action, and (3) faculty can build alliances with staff, students, alumni, and community for shared budget action to realign campus and statewide priorities.

The webinar panelists are Tracy Berger, a communications specialist at the University of Colorado (CU) Boulder and a member of the United Campus Workers Colorado (UCW-CWA 7799) Steering Committee; Aimee Loiselle, a postdoctoral fellow at Smith College and current co-facilitator for Scholars for a New Deal for Higher Education; Steve Newman, an associate professor of English at Temple University, and a member of the Steering Committee for A New Deal for Higher Education; Eleni Schirmer, who is finishing a PhD at UW-Madison in Educational Policy Studies, and a member of the Teaching Assistant’s Association, AFT 3220; Helen C. Scott, a Professor of English at the University of Vermont, and department representative for United Academics, the faculty union, and a board member of Vermont AFL-CIO state labor council, and Nancy Welch, a Professor of English and member of United Academics AFT/AAUP at the University of Vermont.
