Assistant Professor, Media and Cinema Studies

I’m a junior faculty member, and so much is at stake at this moment in my career. Faculty union contracts ensure transparent tenure, promotion, and grievance procedures, which can benefit historically underrepresented members of the professoriate and can enable the hiring and retention of sought-after scholars and build the kind of robust academic community I want to work in. In this era of declining state support, we need a strong, organized voice for faculty governance to ensure that the university serves its public mission in the decades to come.
