UConn “Day of Action at the Board of Trustees Meeting”

Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated union members are invited to join the professors, faculty and staff in the state’s flagship higher education institution in protecting their students’ learning opportunities. The purpose is to move University of Connecticut (UConn) trustees and top administrators to stand up to the governor’s proposed budget cuts in 2024 and 2025. 

To send a strong, unified message to the governor and board of trustees (BOT), members are urged to bring at least one colleague and, if applicable, student with them. Rally begins at 8:15 am at the Founder’s Green. The public speaking portion of the BOT meeting beginning at 9:00 am will provide the opportunity for sharing stories of the impact of the threatened cuts. 

The “teach-in” is scheduled to begin at 10:30 am at McHue Hall, room 101. Members and students will then march from McHue Hall to the BoT meeting in the Wilbur Cross building at 11:30 am.

The events are organized by our affiliated UConn Professional Employees Association (UCPEA), UConn-AAUP, as well as the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition (SEBAC).

Fee-based parking for visitors is available on campus.
