We have a lot of organizing work to get ready for the all-faculty meeting with Chancellor Tillis on Wednesday, November 10, at 11:20 a.m. in Penn 401 and the celebration of our students outside the Arts and Sciences commencement—now at a NEW TIME: 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, November 10, at BB&T Pavilion.
Please fill out this form telling us what you’re willing to do in the next two days to make sure we send a message, loud and clear, that we’re standing up for Rutgers-Camden’s future.
— All-faculty meeting on November 10: Please attend in person if possible. We want the biggest possible turnout. Don’t just plan on going yourself—we’re asking you to talk to three colleagues about attending this meeting, so we have a maximum voice advocating for our future. We want to make sure Chancellor Tillis has to answer difficult questions.
This has been labeled a faculty meeting, but it is for all of us—faculty, grad workers, staff, and students. We are appealing to everyone who has an interest in Rutgers-Camden to come to this meeting, and our colleagues in New Brunswick and Newark will be watching by Zoom to help us send our message.
— Arts and Sciences Commencement: We moved up our mobilization for the commencement to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday so we have maximum time to greet our students before the ceremony starts. We want to be very clear that we are there for our students and their families. Our decision not to participate inside during the ceremony is our way to advocate for the university we need and to serve our future students effectively.
