We are now again accepting applications for the Class of 2022 Emerging Leaders College. Applications are due on June 30, 2021, and the College will hold its first session in the middle of September. Participants will be notified of the acceptance of their application by July 12, 2021 and the schedule will be finalized after. Please send all electronic applications Janel Engesser (firstname.lastname@example.org), mailed applications can be mailed to the state office at 55 Sherburne Ave West, St. Paul, MN 55103.
We will be accepting 10 - 15 applications again this year, and we would like to encourage all faculty who are interested in keeping MSCF strong to participate. New faculty, underrepresented faculty, temporary faculty, senior faculty who are feeling a resurgence in unionism, et al. are all welcome!
There will be approximately seven sessions (sessions will be a mix of in-person and virtual) and the participants will be expected to attend all of them, which includes the virtual Delegate Assembly in the spring. The sessions will focus on topics such as the history of MSCF and the contract, contract language, roles of state and local officers, legislative activities, working with Minn State as a member of the system, underrepresented groups and unions, and member engagement/organizing.
