FALL TERM 2014
PSU Student Union Viking Day Welcome
Wednesday, September 24 at 2:00pm - 4:00pmSMSU Room 236
Come join your Student Union for food, coffee and a couple of hours of socializing. Make friends, learn about student issues on campus, what your student union is doing for you and how you can get involved in making our campus a better, safer, happier experience for everyone.
~Freshmen, New Students & Returning Students all welcome~
We will be having an engaging presentation and open discussion on the history and current state of student unions, the evolution of secondary education and the power we wield today to enact change.
We will also be getting students actively involved with a handful of engaging activities related to envisioning and reclaiming student power and voices.
We will be in SMSU Room 236 and representatives of the Union will be around before and after to talk and answer any questions you might have about the Union itself, our campaigns and student life in general.
We look forward to seeing you there!
winter 2014 Term AssemblIES
GENERAL MEETING TO DISCUSS NEXT STEPS FOR FAIR FACULTY CONTRACTS
Will there be a faculty strike this Spring Term - OR - will the President Wiewel's administration bargain a fair contract with our professors?
This past Thursday's rally was an incredible showing of the overwhelming student support for our professors, so let's keep up the heat!
This general meeting will be a focused discussion around possible strategies and tactics students can take action on if, come Spring Term, there is still no agreement. How will we hold the administration accountable to those it supposedly exists to serve? Let's have a conversation and decide together!
For a general timeline of how a faculty strike may come to pass, visit: http://www.psusu.org/psusu-blog.html

March For Fairness Contract Rally
UPDATE: Hundreds turned out for a Rally For Fairness despite the freezing cold and a university administration that has made it more than apparent that they have absolutely no interest in listening to what anyone else has to say. Photos!

PSUFA-AFT (Portland State University Faculty Association - American Federation of Teachers)
Adjunct faculty have reached a contract! The fourth demand of the Campus Safety & Fairness Petition has been met. Way to go PSUFA! Now we just need to show the administration it's time for a fair contract for ALL our professors.
UPDATED: Great success! Thanks for coming everyone!
