Dear Massachusetts Public Higher Education officials,
As you know, Massachusetts prides itself on a commitment to higher education, providing the building blocks for a future generation informed by science, culture, and common sense.
In the wake of the biggest health crisis in the last century, we’re concerned that too many public higher education administrations, perhaps including yours, have laid off or are considering laying off staff and faculty when our schools need them most.
That’s why we’ve launched the “Massachusetts Agrees” campaign to defend public higher education in Massachusetts. Please take a moment to watch the campaign launch video at MassachusettsAgrees.org. It calls on public higher education officials, including you, to do more to secure the necessary funding to keep Massachusetts public higher education campuses functioning and safe.
In short, we’re asking you to do your job and find solutions that prevent cuts to essential staff, faculty, or to student programs. We are also asking you to meet with us to hear more about these concerns. To arrange a discussion, please contact Massachusetts Teachers Association Director of Government Relations Eric Nakajima at ENakajima@massteacher.org, and we’ll be happy to tell you more.
We hope you will join us in advocating to Governor Baker, the legislature, and Congress, to invest in public higher education for the sake of our economy, our Commonwealth’s future, and to ensure equitable access to affordable, high quality public higher education for every student and aspiring student across the 29 college and university campuses in our state.
Will you stand with us to defend public higher education? Or will you resort to draconian and short-sighted cuts?
If you have made cuts, let’s work together to restore and deploy the staff and faculty that students need to be safe and keep learning amidst the current crisis.
Again, please visit MassachusettsAgrees.org to learn more about our message and appeal for your very necessary and urgent support in these challenging times.
