Please sign the Petition to keep 40 FTE faculty positions at Edinboro University

Retract the plans proposed in the Edinboro University Operations and Workforce Plan as released from the Office of the President September 10, 2013 to place five university programs on moratorium and potentially eliminate more than 40 FTE faculty positions.

Petition Background

Many Edinboro University students, alumni, faculty and staff, community members, and others are opposed to Dr. Wollman's new 2013-2018 Strategic Plan and would like their voices heard. We are united in our opposition to Edinboro's plans to potentially eliminate more than 40 FTE faculty positions and the elimination of baccalaureate programs in German, Music, Music Education, Philosophy, and World Languages and Cultures. While we realize that Edinboro University is currently facing a budget deficit we do not believe that academics or faculty are areas that should be stifled, as a result.

SIGN THE PETITION - please !

 
 
Here is a video I shot with Brian Ferrell for Craft in Sight featuring Sue Amendolara, one of the Edinboro professors who would be affected by the cuts !

"We have organized and attended more artist estate sales over the last 40 years than I can remember. Our experience is chiefly with jewelers, lapidaries, and metalsmiths. There seems to be a very distinct and repetitive pattern to these…"

"Very interesting articles and at the same time, a very sad story. It all just fits right into the fact that there is a dwindling market for new or seasoned craft, even craft that had a previously established value.  "
