Annual Membership Meeting, November 17
UW Faculty Forward will be holding its annual General Membership Meeting on Friday, November 17, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm on the UW Seattle campus, HUB 145.
The first half of the meeting will feature a public talk by Dr. Susan Hegeman, followed by discussion with audience members. Dr. Hegeman is Professor of English at the University of Florida and Communications Chair and former President for United Faculty of Florida, UF Chapter, so her comments and perspective are sure to be helpful for the work we’re doing at UW.
During the second half of the meeting, faculty leaders will lead a discussion on understanding UW’s budget and organizing around budget cuts.
Invited speakers include Michael Forman (Associate Professor – Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs, Aaron Katz (Principal Lecturer - Health Services, UW Seattle), and William Lyne (Professor – English, Western Washington University – President, United Faculty of Washington State).
Both Dr. Hegeman’s talk during the first hour and our discussions during the second hour will be important for our organizing efforts.
