On Thursday, 100 faculty members, represented by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF), demonstrated at the quarterly Board of Governors' meeting of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) in Harrisburg.
Faculty at the 14 state-owned universities have been working without an agreement for more than 15 months. APSCUF has offered binding interest arbitration to help settle a contract.
The Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties represents more than 6,000 faculty and coaches at the 14 State System universities.
Kevin Mahoney, a professor at Kutztown University, advocated for a fair contract that recognizes the contributions of faculty to their students, their universities and the State System.
