Hope all is going well as we head into the mid-point of the Fall semester.
There has been some news coverage across the region the past few days regarding ongoing negotiations for a new contract with our faculty and our classified staff workers, so we wanted to provide updated information and some context.
The Board of Trustees met this afternoon and has put out a news release explaining the status of the discussions. As the release indicates, the administration, faculty and staff believe we can resolve the contract without any disruption to university operations. We will keep you posted on any updates.
Most importantly, we want you to know that all of us are committed to ensuring a successful completion of the Fall semester. You have all worked hard to keep our campus safe during these uncertain times, and we are all going to work hard to make sure the semester ends well.
