Faculty react thoughtfully to truth-telling

At yesterday's AGM, close to 200 faculty members listened raptly to CFA's guest speaker, Steven Garfinkle, president of the United Faculty of Western Washington (UFWW), as he spoke about Western's experience in dealing with a disassociated administration.

President Garfinkle gave a stirring speech about the harrowing process of negotiations that led to what has been described by the National Education Association in the U.S. as “a model for leading the profession in higher education.” His central theme: own the mission of your university.

Cap U faculty attached his words to head and heart – new ownership is on its way!
