Over the past two years, faculty and allies in the Faculty Forward Network have made great strides to fight against the corporatization of higher education. Together, we lifted up the voices of adjunct faculty struggling to make ends meet, advocated for civil rights on campus, held for-profit colleges accountable, and raised awareness about the attacks facing our public colleges and universities. We are proud of what we have accomplished together.
Despite these meaningful victories, our nation's higher education infrastructure faces unprecedented attacks under the Trump Administration. Most recently, the Republican tax bill threatens graduate students with astronomical taxes that would force many to drop out of school. To that end, FFN has made the decision to close its operations as the project of a charitable organization. It is our hope that faculty efforts and resources be redirected in the resistance movement. Please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any questions or want ideas on how to be involved in the higher education movement going forward.
We appreciate your commitment to transforming our nation's higher education system and are grateful for your understanding as we face these challenging times.
