Can we be sure that we record this!

I would really like a copy of the slides so I can address colleagues in the OSU College of Medicine who are not present.
Kalesha Scott
36:36
Same these slides would be a great resource for me

We'll plan to make the slides available.

OU has had ties with the Householder circle. (Householder himself is an OU grad, I believe.). https://www.athensnews.com/news/campus/indicted-householder-accomplice-lobbied-for-ohio-university-to-influence-state-funding/article_178fa221-d29c-5273-a6ce-79d8dd66a10b.html

In addition to earlier large increases, the years since roughly 2010 have seen a 45 percent increase in FTE administrators per FTE student at Ohio University.
Quincy Collins

Thanks, Abby!

Thanks for all the info Abby!

52:44
Well done, Abby!

52:44
Thank you!!! I’d love to have the power point to distribute in case folks don’t want to listen to the entire mtg.
Sadie Yost
52:45
Great job Abby!

Here’s the website in case anyone was interested!
Cathy Wagner
53:46
yes we can share the slides!
Cathy Wagner
54:07
and everybody go look at boldlybankrupt.com, it’s fantastic, and many of our institutions are similar — UC Is not an outlier!
James Mulick
54:52
That was great Abby!
Cathy Wagner
54:55
How many grad student stipends would that $5m cover?
Michelle Boone
55:15
There's summer scholarship X 5 that they are trying to take away at Miami
Sue Ramlo
55:25
Yes…$$$$$$ on branding—we have become so inured to the effects of this shift in the last ten years!
John McNay
55:30
Awesome work, Abby!
Abby Stidham
55:46
Thank you friends
Cathy Wagner
56:59

Thank you Angela!!!
Nancy Garer
01:00:15
thanks, Angela -- great information
Sadie Yost
01:00:29
Thank you Angela!
Sue Ramlo
01:00:45
Thank you, Angela. We were “desperate” at UT to get the MPA program going in Arts and Science BECAUSE those students tend to be full-pay and assume that they must pay.
Shannon Barnes
01:00:47
Thank you!
Loren Lybarger
01:00:48
Really helpful and urgent perspective, Angela, thank you.
Emma Reed
01:00:49
Angela, will you share your social media again? I have a lot of Miami friends that i know would like to get involved

And also all my info will be available in the shared slides :)
Emma Reed
01:01:46
thank you!
Sue Ramlo
01:01:51
I can see it!
Sue Ramlo
01:04:33
That is brilliant. We keep saying this at UT, but it does not register when they talk about the lack of ‘discretionary’ funds and how personnel eats up the budget…
Angela Glotfelter
01:05:35
I’m just scrolling through the chat, that 5 mil that they spent on the landscape “rebranding” would have covered ~3000 grad students’ summer funding
Cathy Wagner
01:05:57
@Angela !!!
Tom Rooney
01:06:15
Those were the Ironworkers
Marianne Cotugno
01:06:30
@angela and @cathy Yes, and I believe someone crashed into the traffic furniture soon after it was put up …
Angela Glotfelter
01:06:50
Yes, someone immediately drove into a concrete monolith they had erected :)
Angela Glotfelter
01:06:56
I wish I had pics of that!
Shannon Barnes
01:07:47
I returned to Oxford in 2019 after being away at graduate school for 3 years, and couldn't understand for the life of me why they had made that signage...
Loren Lybarger
01:15:25
Some quick background on the strike is at the link here for anyone unfamiliar with it: https://www.aaup.org/article/strike-wright-state#.X1KZr9Z7kWo. The strike was a success in blunting retrenchment and forcing the administration to negotiate with the faculty. It was an example of how faculty and student action can become a force to prevent damage to a university.
Cathy Wagner
01:15:48
thanks Loren!
John McNay
01:16:10
So inspirational...
Loren Lybarger
01:18:29
The WSU strike was also an object lesson in the necessity of ongoing organizing work to build faculty and student solidarity and power even when you have a union.
Annette Oxindine
01:20:29
Thanks, Hope, for telling this important story. As someone who also lived through it, I appreciate it and our students!
Nancy Garer
01:20:32
thanks, Hope -- great overview of student support at Wright State
Loren Lybarger
01:20:33
Hope, thank you for sharing this story. Very inspirational!
Cole Sparks
01:20:50
thanks Hope!
Sadie Yost
01:21:36
Thank you Hope!
Marianne Cotugno
01:21:48
Many thanks Hope! That was really wonderful.
Abby Stidham
01:23:11
Your leadership was crucial John!! Thank you
Loren Lybarger
01:24:18
I have to leave for another zoom meeting. John, sorry I can’t stay for all of your presentation. Thank you, Cathy, Jill, Abby, Hope, everyone! These conversations are so important as we work on our individual campuses to achieve some kind of accountability and turn-around in how our institutions are being run.
Angela Glotfelter
01:24:36
Yep, it was almost immediate
Shannon Barnes
01:25:21
Miami was immediate...they told me my contract wasn't going to be renewed, then realized during summer orientation that they had acted too quickly.
Cathy Wagner
01:25:28
John means nontenured track faculty at Miami — mostly full-time but also part-time — more than 200 were non renewed this spring
Cathy Wagner
01:25:39
You’re one of the few who came back, Shannon!
Cathy Wagner
01:25:46
glad you are still with us!
Shannon Barnes
01:25:56
I'm grateful to be back.
Cathy Wagner
01:26:12
They are the ones who should be grateful! You are deserving!
Pamela Schulze
01:26:26
we lost more than 100 all told. the academic mission has been hobbled.
Angela Glotfelter
01:26:36
Sometimes good intentions are not enough if the right method isn’t there

Abby Stidham
01:36:00
Very true
Jill Galvan
01:36:44
Ohio State has accumulated a $9 billion in cash and investment revenues over the last decade. Even in just in the past year, despite the pandemic, OSU earned an almost half-billion $ surplus. Yet they're cutting $175M from academic funding this academic year.
Jill Galvan
01:36:49

Jill Galvan
01:38:03
correction: $9 billion in cash and investment *reserves*
Emma Reed
01:38:14
that raises such a good question. why focus on efficiency in that part of the budget alone. it’s rather inhumane. I really don’t understand why that would be such a focused target of budget cuts
Tom Rooney
01:39:07
Thanks John—always informative.
Emma Reed
01:39:21
thank you John
Deborah Lyons
01:39:23
Thanks so much, John!
Sadie Yost
01:39:26
Thank you John!

Nancy Garer

thank you for all you've done for Ohio higher ed.
