Welcome Message

On behalf of our President, Bob Jaskulski, and the chapter Executive Committee, welcome to the CCC-AAUP web site. The AAUP's mission is described by the motto, "Quality through Unity." As we expect even more challenges ahead, our mission remains just as important as ever. The strength of our union depends on each member committing to that unity and each giving his or her best as professional educators for our students and our college.

Our new contract has given us the opportunity to make progress in joint governance. To truly make the most of this, we must be sure that these agreements are fully embraced by the administration and not allowed to be degraded by bureaucratic inaction. Change can be difficult, but we must become involved as active participants so that what has been won at the bargaining table is truly meaningful. Again, we must be ready to lead. We expect to have many more opportunities to lead going forward, as many of you serve on the various AAUP and/or Faculty Senate committees.

There are some upcoming changes in your AAUP leadership. The first phase of elections has been completed and President-Elect Ed Foley is preparing to take the helm again in June. The second phase of elections is for most of the other Executive Committee positions including a Vice President and a Representative at each campus, Secretary, and Treasurer. Please see the Elections page to see the list of candidates and links to personal statements from those who provided them.

Communication with your AAUP leadership is essential for defending your rights. President Bob Jaskulski has called upon us to step up our communications effort. Your Executive Committee launched a newsletter as part of this effort. You should have already received the two issues of the newsletter by email so far this year. You can also read the newsletters on this site under News & Events. You will continue to receive important information also by email.

Communication is a two-way process, so each member should not hesitate to discuss a potential issue with a member of the Executive Committee. Problems have surfaced where an administrator's procedures violated provisions of the contract, but had been allowed to continue because no one passed it on to his or her union representative. The sooner information about a situation is shared, the sooner it can be addressed, and in many cases prevent something from festering into a larger problem in the future. And you can call the Union office as well.

Your Executive Committee is committed to working on behalf of the members to assist all of us in living out the mission of the AAUP.
