In following the example set by SPARC in calling upon the board of regents to fire the administrative staff at UWSP, and the Portage County Eco-Socialists calling for Greg and Bernie’s resignation, the UWSP Eco-Socialists have taken it upon ourselves to take action.
As students at this university (who are largely pursuing degrees in COLS), and as student who have grown close to many faculty members who now face termination, we want to do everything we can to preserve the integrity of this institution and bring about an end to this act of injustice.
On Wednesday, December 5th, we will be holding a meeting at 7pm in CPS room #210 at UW Stevens Point that we hope you will all attend. At this meeting, we will be filming personal testimonials from UWSP faculty, students and Stevens Point community members not only endorsing the call for for an administrative change but to speak to the importance of the humanities and social sciences at this university. We will then compile these statements into a larger video (along with a petition) which we will distribute on social media platforms and send to the board of regents, the administration themselves, the press, and the community at large.
