This Wednesday, Nov. 16, 4:30-5:30 central time, join United Campus Workers of Mississippi and the American Association of University Professors for a discussion with Brian Leiter, who will be talking with us about the importance of academic freedom and tenure. Brian Leiter is the Karl N. Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the Center for Law, Philosophy & Human Values at the University of Chicago and writes regularly for the Chronicle of Higher Education. You can read more on his views on academic freedom here.
Have you joined your coworkers in signing UCWMS’ open letter to the IHL? Together, we are calling for the reversal of their recent changes to tenure and the selection of university leadership. Read and sign the letter here.
You and your coworkers can win real, substantive change in Mississippi if you come together and organize. Join your coworkers and fight for the universities your communities deserve! If you’d like to join an organizing committee, or if you have skills or ideas to share with your coworkers in UCW, you can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
