Transparency Letter to the College President and Her Cabinet

On August 3, 2020, the AAUP chapter sent a Transparency Letter to the college’s president and her cabinet. Based on research by the chapter’s “budget cuts” group, the letter aimed to promote transparency in administration-faculty communications, to solicit information needed by the faculty to understand important decisions being made by the administration, and to request due consultation with the faculty leadership on all decisions. The Transparency Letter contained three specific requests for information. It was circulated to the faculty at large.
