Dear RAFO Members,

During my first informal sit down with President Ali, he asked me to solicit ideas from the union membership of aspects that will improve their teaching experience at Roosevelt University. Everything from office supplies to communication with specific departments to professional development opportunities can be requested. In response to President Ali's inquiry, I am holding four Zoom conferences during the month of September to gather specific ideas for improving the working conditions of our adjunct faculty.  Members of the Executive Committee and I will bring these ideas to President Ali, Provost Lois Becker, HR and members of the administration at the fall Presidents' Meeting with the goal of achieving some of these items outside of the confines of traditional union bargaining. 

Please join our conversation about the working conditions and issues at RU with me and other members on Monday, September 10 (6 p.m. CST) or Wednesday, September 12 (7 p.m. CST). Other dates and Zoom links will follow this announcement.

To join the Monday, September 10 (6 p.m.) Zoom meeting, please use this link:

Here to serve.

Jen Wilson, President
