What's New?

small colored dot We have posted the latest Right Flier newsletter (volume 15, number 1). This issue features one main article on "What’s New in the CBA’s? -- Part 1: Annual Evaluations of Teaching and Service".
small colored dot We have signed two new MOUs. One MOU modifies the workload agreements for NTE and TET faculty, and the other specifies that the annual evaluations of TET faculty conducted in 2015 will consider scholarship from the calendars years 2010-2014.
small colored dot Our two new CBAs for 2014-2017 -- one for the NTE and one for the TET Bargaining Unit -- have been posted online in the form in which we expect the printed copies to appear.

To quote from the association’s web site,

“The AAUP’s purpose is to advance academic freedom and shared governance, to define fundamental professional values and standards for higher education, and to ensure higher education's contribution to the common good.”

Wright State University’s chapter -- the AAUP-WSU-- welcomes all university faculty into its membership. The chapter also acts as the collective bargaining agent for two bargaining units: (1) tenure-track and tenured faculty (excepting those holding certain administrative appointments at the rank of chair and higher) on both the Dayton and Celina (Lake) campuses, and (2) non-tenure-eligible "NTE" faculty (excepting those with primary appointments in the Boonshoft School of Medicine or the School of Professional Psychology) on both the Dayton and Celina (Lake) campuses. All Wright State University faculty -- adjunct faculty, faculty with administrative appointments, faculty with primary appointments in the Boonshoft School of Medicine or the School of Professional Psychology -- as well as faculty in the two bargaining units described above -- are cordially invited to join the AAUP-WSU.
