Thanks to the efforts of WMU-AAUP staff, countless behind-the-scenes workers, and perfect weather, our annual member barbecue was a huge success. As we dive into another school year, one that promises both predictable and surprising challenges, it was gratifying to spend an evening catching up with old colleagues and meeting new ones. We faculty don’t have nearly enough opportunities to connect across campus and be reminded that the strength of the WMU-AAUP is in the determination and tenacity of its members.
As you’re looking for additional ways to connect with nearby and far-flung WMU faculty colleagues, here are a couple of possibilities for this semester:
- Drop in discussion over coffee at Montague House this coming Tues., Sept. 10 at 9:30
- New faculty luncheon for department reps (association council members) and new AAUP colleagues on Sept. 20 in Bernhard 157 at 1:30
- Fourth Friday happy hour for AAUP members on Sept. 27, 5:00 at Arcadia Brewing
Also consider following us on Facebook and Twitter where we make near daily posts, and keep an eye out for email updates. We are stronger together!
