Hearings were necessary because University leaders took NO INPUT from any of the workers, students, faculty, or community members who rely on the UI Labor Center’s education and research prior to announcing their threat to defund the 67-year-old center. Iowa’s public universities must hear from the public before making major decisions with significant, permanent impact on students, working Iowans, and communities across the state.
If you were unable to attend a hearing in person (or if you attended but did not have a chance to speak), now is your chance to join with Iowans across the state to include YOUR voice in the discussion about the future of the UI Labor Center. Voices of current and future students, labor and community leaders, and Iowans from all walks of life are making a difference! Take this historic opportunity to share your experiences or observations on the Labor Center's impact on the UI campus or on the Iowa community where you live and work.
Please note that comments may be made public in summaries provided to the Iowa Board of Regents or posted on the Save Our Labor Center web site.
