|On March 6th, 2014 President Kaler will be giving his administration’s State of the University address in Coffman. After Kaler’s address, SDS and others are hosting an event meant to highlight a different narrative to the one he will likely be describing: a Student, Staff and Faculty perspective on the state of the University.While we see tuition at an all-time high, we also see top-adminstrators’ CEO-like salaries at an all-time high.
While front-line staff and faculty either get cut or are not offered long-term employment, class sizes or increasing and student services are decreasing.
While we hear Kaler talk about wanting to increase diversity, we have seen no real efforts going towards getting higher representation of MN black and brown youth at our University.
We want to pose the question and have a dialogue about whose state of the University is Kaler going to speak about? We have our own stories that are worth hearing.
Please join SDS and other groups to engage in a report-back on the real issues that are affecting our campus community and hear your ideas for what needs to be done!
