STATEWIDE MEETING TO SAVE HIGHER EDUCATION
Tuition is going up↑ Services are down↓
Class sizes are up↑ Access is down↓
War spending is up↑ Academic freedom is down↓
Isn't it time to turn our campuses around?!?
With: Guest speaker Ben Manski, a fellow with the Liberty Tree Foundation and one of the nation's leading experts on the corporate takeover of higher education.
What: Connect the dots on what is happening to higher education in Connecticut. Develop a plan of action for reversing the tuition hikes, union-busting, and other aspects of corporatization.
Why: Access to a quality education is one of the chief pillars of any democracy. If students don't lead the way in fighting for higher education, who will?
Who: UConn students are hosting this meeting. We've already heard from other students, faculty, staff, and community members at other campuses who plan to attend. We hope you'll join us.
