Make University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill a Model for Prioritizing Public Over Corporate Interests

We are Faculty Forward Network, a group of faculty, students, and community members united in our belief in the dignity and value of faculty, students, instruction and research. As part of our mission, we strive to educate people regarding and improve the working conditions for faculty and other campus workers across the country, and uphold access to affordable, quality, higher education opportunities for all. In short, we are part of a nationwide movement of faculty fighting for a voice in the higher education system.

 
As faculty we envision a university community with:
 
WORKPLACE PROTECTIONS
A safe working environment free of harassment and discrimination. Improved working conditions and fair pay.
 
RACIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE
Protect and defend civil rights. Ensure the equitable treatment of faculty and students. Foster a campus community that values the diversity and dignity of all.
 
ACADEMIC FREEDOM AND SHARED GOVERNANCE
Maintain faculty autonomy in research, instruction, and governance. Oppose the undue political influence of the UNC Board of Governors. Balance the power by prioritizing public interests over corporate interests.
