National Day of Action for Education Rights

RSVP on facebook

The University must support students and the land grant mission, not managers. That means keeping tuition down, cutting management payroll, and applying resources to directly support teaching and research. In the past ten years, hundreds of senior management positions have been added, while tuition has doubled – making a quality education unattainable for the children of many working class Minnesotans. 

The time has come for a change in direction at the University of Minnesota. Will this be a University that carries out its land grant mission? Will this be a University for the working people of the state of Minnesota? Or will this be a University that only serves the interests of the elite, and enriches administrators?

Join students, staff, and faculty on Thursday as we rally for a University for the 99%.
