This FREE Conference program is designed for YOU:
- “Organizing in the ‘Non-Community’ College and University Environment,” with Caprice Lawless, Co-President of AAUP Colorado Conference & ‘Organizer Extraordinaire’: Do you want to learn how to raise eyebrows, turn heads, change minds, snag headlines, and dog administrators? See how you can turn your administration’s messes into organizing gold. Take a look at our Adjunct Survival Workshops, Adjunct Faculty Flu-Shot Voucher program, our cathartic year-end Damn It! Summit, and fun AAUP Halloween Scrabble games. Think of how a Best Worst Story about Work helps organize faculty. Take a peek at The Adjunct Cookbook, the Adjunct Coloring Book, the AAUP Flash Cards, and The Adjunct Index, then think how you might use them to build awareness about your academic issues and to build your AAUP chapter.
- “Creating Effective Remote Organizing Campaigns,” with David Kociemba, AAUP East Coast Organizer: The pandemic has brought new urgency to organizing, but it has also brought new challenges. East Coast Organizer David Kociemba will survey the ways that many AAUP chapters have risen to the occasion with creative new twists on fundamental organizing techniques and strategies.
- “HEADS UP! Race and Racism in Higher Education,” with panelists Jackie Orr (Syracuse University), Bushra Naqi (#NotAgainSU), Aicha Sacko (#NotAgainSU), Senator Rachel May, CarolAnn Daniel (Adelphi University), Brooks Frederick (Adelphi University), Ángel L. Martínez (Bronx Community College/CUNY, NYSC AAUP), and Cheryl McBride (Nassau Community College, NYSC AAUP).
