Skyrocketing tuition and declining compensation levels for academic staff and faculty are two very serious problems. They both threaten our university's ability to deliver quality, affordable education to Wisconsin's citizens. And they both arise from the same structural problems.
Too often, university administrators and politicians have tried to pit the interests of students against those of us who work at the university. It is only by working together, however, that we can solve these problems. Come participate in a discussion with United Faculty and Academic Staff (UFAS) and the Coalition for Affordable Public Education (CAPE) about how to improve access to the UW-Madison while maintaining its excellence as a premier teaching and research institution.

ALL ARE WELCOME!
United Faculty and Academic Staff (UFAS), Local 223, AFT-Wisconsin, AFL-CIO, is a labor union democratically organized to represent its members: academic staff, faculty, and postdocs employed at UW-Madison and UW-Extension’s Madison campus. For more information, contact UFAS President Frank Emspak via firstname.lastname@example.org
(I was asked to pass this along and am happy to do it — it's a discussion we badly need to have on campus and elsewhere in the state.)
