Two Chicago Events on Higher Education

Two events in Chicago where I'll be speaking this week.

I'm going to be speaking on a panel on Tuesday at NEIU:

"Free Speech Under Fire: From Wisconsin to NEIU"
panel including Loretta Capeheart of NEIU, Peter Kirstein of St. Xavier, and myself
Tuesday, April 26 · 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU), LWH (Lech Walesa Hall) room 1002
3601 West Bryn Mawr Avenue
Chicago, IL

On Saturday, April 30, I'll be speaking on a panel about graduate student organizing at the Illinois AAUP annual meeting:

Please mark your calendar to attend the joint IL AAUP Annual Meeting and AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress Regional Conference on Saturday April 30, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Chicago Metro, 733 West Madison St., Chicago, Ill. Travel to the Crowne Plaza is easy via Metra, Amtrak, and Megabus. Also, in the past there has often been free parking available on the side streets of Greektown a few blocks west of the hotel (check the street signs).

The conference is free, and will offer many excellent sessions by leaders in the AAUP. Please refer to for more information. If you plan to attend please contact Jennifer Nichols, so that we will have an accurate headcount for workshop materials and meals. Scheduled speakers include Gary Rhoades and Cary Nelson.

I'll also be speaking at the national AAUP's conference and Annual Meeting on June 8 in DC.
