HSSU-NEA's Media Message

Over the last week, several articles have appeared in St. Louis media outlets that have portrayed Harris-Stowe State University in a negative light, and which have been attributed to HSSU-NEA.

The articles this past week do not reflect the core values and goals of HSSU-NEA, including our commitment to good faith bargaining.  HSSU-NEA wants to:

  • ·       Strengthen the enrollment management strategy for student recruitment and retention.
  • ·       Enhance student campus life.
  • ·       Increase salary and benefits to attract, recruit, and retain the best possible full-time and adjunct faculty for HSSU students.
  • ·       Recruit a more diverse population.
  • ·       Broaden professional development opportunities, create and implement best practices for tenure and promotion, expand the number of sabbaticals available, and straighten the selection process to produce a more robust faculty.
  • ·       Own the development of a curriculum that will offer students more academic choices.
  • ·       Have more direct involvement in advising HSSU students.

We look forward to working with the board of regents and the administration as equals through good faith bargaining to achieve these goals.
