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 !

"The merchandising of making exploits new technologies & brings fresh blood, but comes at a cost as well.http://j.mp/1wBtHYH"

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
