Council Members Needed!

Join the WCSU-AAUP!

The WCSU-AAUP has two openings for Council Members and will hold elections to fill these seats in the fall. One seat is a one year term, the other a two-year term.

The Council Member will represent this Chapter on the CSU-AAUP Council, report Council proceedings to the Executive Committee and to the membership, and bring appropriate Chapter recommendations and decisions to the Council meetings.

The CSU-AAUP Council sets policy, negotiation priorities, and oversees the contract at the state level. The Council also works with a state lobbyist who promotes continued excellence in higher education in Connecticut.

The Council usually meets on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the CCSU campus in New Britain. President, Contract Manager, and Council Members are expected to attend the Council meetings.

You may nominate yourself or any other WCSU – AAUP member. Nominations will be held in September.

Campus Community Connection

Announcing: Campus-Community Connection Vol. 2

It has been almost two years since we printed Volume 1 of the Campus-
Community Connection. The time is right to produce Volume 2. The purpose of this publication is to bring our community presence to the attention of the Board of Regents. Please help us!

Let us know what you’ve been doing for the last year or two to bring
campus to community and community to campus. This is your chance to tell us. Do you encourage your students to do projects in the community? Do you run music camp? Do you work on the Bridges Program? Do you have a team for Relay for Life? Do you organize programs that are open to the general public? Let us know.

Send your information to and we’ll do the rest. Our
Deadline is November 15th, 2013, but you might want to get this out of
the way during the summer.
