The National Center's 41st Annual Conference on Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions

 

The National Center thanks all of the panelists, moderators and attendees for making the 41st Annual Conference of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education and the Professions a major success.  The increased registration at this year's conference is a direct result of the quality and diversity of the topics examined at the conference including issues relating to contingent faculty, social media and academic freedom, bullying, the future of pensions in academia, on-line learning and intellectual property.  A number of those panels were digitally recorded for future use as podcasts and webcasts on our website. 

 

The success of the conference would not have been possible without the support of Hunter College and the hard work of numerous Hunter College and CUNY staff and conference volunteers. The conference was underwritten by a grant from TIAA-CREF with additional funding from the Segal Company. 

Conference Evaluations are due May 1, 2014

To encourage direct feedback from attendees at the 41st Annual Conference, we have prepared an on-line survey and evaluation form.  The information garnered from the survey responses will assist the National Center in preparing for next year's conference as well as developing other programming initiatives.

 

If you have not yet had an opportunity to complete the conference survey, we encourage you to take a few short minutes on or before May 1, 2014, to do so.
