That’s it for this session, but the bill will be back. Read more about this important legislation at the links below:

Look for online updates on outcome tomorrow. Hundreds of AAUP members in active chapters sprouting up monthly across Colorado, as well as hundreds of thousands of colleagues in research universities and colleges throughout the U.S., stand in solidarity with Sen.

About @NatM4Equity

The National Mobilization for Equity is a coalition of organizations committed to alleviating the present staffing crisis in higher education: three-quarters of the teaching jobs in American colleges are held by underpaid, precarious and poorly-supported contingent faculty. Our long-term goal is to end contingency as the norm. The current untenable situation not only adversely affects all faculty members, both contingent and tenure-track, it also negatively impacts our profession, our students and the quality of their education.
