SIUC makes the Chronicle

We're back in the Chronicle of Higher Education, in a brief story from their "ticker" titled "Southern Illinois-Carbondale Moves to Subject Tenured Professors to Layoffs". The story is decidedly balanced, but does note importantly that the Board's "last, best, and final offer"
stands out from faculty contracts elsewhere in allowing the cash-strapped university to circumvent the usual requirement that a formal declaration of fiscal crisis precede any decision to lay off the tenured
The way things are headed, we'll get rather more play in the Chronicle before long.

Post a Comment

I will review and post comments as quickly as I can. Comments that are substantive and not vicious will be posted promptly, including critical ones. "Substantive" here means that your comment needs to be more than a simple expression of approval or disapproval. "Vicious" refers to personal attacks, vile rhetoric, and anything else I end up deeming too nasty to post.
