Comments on Representation

Read what post-docs and NTT faculty have to say about representation through the assemblies. Some comments on the comments:

  • There appears to be little enthusiasm for  postdocs  affiliating with the GPSA even though post-docs and grads are confronted with many of the same start-of-career issues.
  • There is some interest in creating a new assembly for all academic title-holders who are not members of the University Faculty.
  • Some feel that their  voices would not be heard in a TT-dominated senate.
  • Many more feel that their voices would only be heard in a reorganized Senate because their job description has a serious overlap with what TT faculty do.
  • Some feel that they are fully appreciated by their department and their college and that there is no need for rearrangements at the university level.
