Why I have started an adjudication against President Cauce, Vice Provost Cameron, Dean Ramsey, and my chair

THE FAILURE OF THE UW ADMISTRATION The University of  Washington  faculty, like the faculty at other major American research universities is governed by a Faculty Code, a set of laws written by the Faculty Senate, voted on by the faculty, and enacted by the Regents.  Sadly, this is a story about [...]

The UW Argues About A Union

A dialog from from AAUP listserv GAUTHAM P. REDDY to Faculty Amy, Congratulations on undertaking this fascinating and innovative study that demonstrates the benefit that unions have provided (and likely will continue to provide) for working people in our nation.

Who is Norm Arkans?

Norm Arkans is head of the UW’s Office of Media Relations and Communications My biggest concern is that Mr. Arkans’ activities are not overseen by the Faculty Senate.  In effect we have a Minister of Propaganda whose activities curtail the free speech that should be part of the central [...]

UW abolishes shared governance III: A response by the President

Who Runs the UW? The Faculty or the Hired Administrators?

Rajib Dooga This time a question that has been lurking at the back of my mind ever since first year of grad school.  I’m hoping list members can help me “scratch this old itch.” Please note that this is not about any specific action or event, and most definitely not about the proximate trigge[...]

UW Needs a Stronger Senate Before it Needs an SEIU Union

Pedro Verdugo “In fact the ball is in Ana Mari’s court. She might be constrained by a powerful Board of Regents, and by a heavy UW bureaucracy. Nevertheless, many of us in the faculty are betting that she might be the President that once and for all resolves these shameful shortcomings of co[...]
