Meeting of the Graduate Faculty
Whereas the secret deal between Pearson, Inc. and Rutgers University calls into question the faculty’s rights to academic freedom, intellectual property, fair compensation, and to a role in governing the University. We, the undersigned, are petitioning for a meeting of the Graduate Faculty in the Graduate School in New Brunswick (Rutgers University) to be held in October 2013. The main agenda item of that meeting would concern the proposed online, Pearson-managed Masters of Science and Business in Drug Discovery and Development, as well as the Pearson contract itself. This meeting would culminate in a vote – or a decision to defer the vote – on whether the Graduate Faculty approve or reject the proposed Masters.
Should a "yes" or "no" vote be required before October 2013, please register our signatures as "no" votes.
