A call for support and action from the organized workers at Roosevelt U.:
Come Thursday June 16 for a vigil from 11 am to 2 pm in front of the Auditorium building to save Roosevelt University from making a big mistake by balancing the budget on the backs of students, adjuncts, and full-time faculty.
Instead of asking everyone at Roosevelt to share the sacrifice, the administration is proposing that the students and faculty bear the load by eliminating 235 classes for the 2011-2012 academic year. This will increase class size and give students fewer course choices to earn toward graduation.
If you can’t come, send letters to James J. Mitchell, III, Chairman of the Roosevelt University Board of Trustees, in care of Roosevelt University, 430 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605 or emailing him in care of email@example.com telling him to postpone a vote on the budget until a fair and prudent proposal can be developed.
Bring your friends.
