January UUP Meeting and Workshop to cover workload

On Wednesday, January 30, 2019, at noon, in Le Café, Morris, UUP will sponsor a luncheon workshop and discussion specific to UUP Professionals on Workload. Part-time and full-time Professionals are encouraged to attend. 

UUP needs substantive impact from its Professional members on their workload experience and observation at the College.

The January 30 UUP Professional session will open with a workshop concerning contractual responsibilities, limitations, and remedies concerning workload. Labor Relations Specialist Darryl Wood will lead the workshop. Discussion by rank-and-file UUPers about workload will drive the second part of the sessions. Table captains, drawn from the ranks of UUP officers and departmental representatives, will facilitate discussion and record comments. To encourage frank discussion, the author identity of specific comments will not appear in the written record.

[UUP will hold a separate session for its Academic members.]

Faculty Convivium to touch on “American Protectionism” in February

You are cordially invited to luncheon with the Oneonta Faculty Convivium on Thursday, February 7, from noon to 1 p.m., in Le Café, Morris Hall.

Dr. Gayane Torosyan, Associate Professor of Communication and Media, will present a talk titled, “Public Discourse and The Rise of American Protectionism.”

Abstract: The 2016 election of Donald J. Trump and the “Brexit” vote both caught many pundits off guard for outcomes that seemed improbable, because many analysts did not consider the skewed rewards of the contemporary economic order. Both events suggest the resurgence of a form of economic nationalism in which aspiring and elected political leaders attack the inequalities generated by current conditions through promises to end or curtail practices that are “unfair” or otherwise disproportionately burdensome to their domestic interests. This project investigates American perceptions of “protectionism,” and their intersections with the discernible and imagined economic trends. Through a survey of more than 600 Americans concerning protectionism and neoliberal economic policies, this study examines how the discussion of current economic trends in news and social media, in addition to personal encounters with factors supporting or stifling their own economic aspirations, inform the way Americans perceive economic reality.

Seating is limited. To reserve a seat, please call X2517 prior to February 5. Vegetarian meals are available.

GSRC seeking to collaborate for Women’s History Month Programming

Traditionally, the GSRC has hosted various programming during the month of March to celebrate Women’s History/Herstory. Since there are likely other programs happening across campus highlighting women throughout the month, a means of cross-promotion by compiling these events into one cohesive calendar so that our community is aware of what different departments/offices are hosting during March may be additionally beneficial. Programming can include speakers, film screenings, dialogues, activities, etc. 

If you or your department/office plans to have any programming that would coincide with Women’s History/Herstory Month, please contact Emily Phelps at
