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 (mainly virtual, depending upon the pandemic) 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.
