The MN Higher Education Worker Center and allies welcome you to join us for an afternoon of fun, festivities, and solidarity with faculty, staff, and students across   Minnesota’s education institutions.
Meet your colleagues in a safe, caring, outdoor environment.
Join progressive elected officials in brainstorming a student and labor-centered platform for public education.
Co-Sponsored by 
Augsburg Staff Union & AAUP Minnesota
Connect with faculty, students, and staff from 
the UMN and Minnesota State systems, private colleges, and K-12 public schools.
We will follow CDC safety guidelines and ask you to wear masks.

As colleges, universities, and schools across the state begin reopening, workers, educators, and students are struggling to keep each other safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Chronic budget cuts, heavier class loads, understaffing, and fear and confusion around reopening are leading to burnout and fatigue. A crisis in higher education is acute and palpable. At a time like this, we want to catch our breath and reconnect with the shared struggle for dignity on the job and safe spaces to work, learn and grow.

At its core, education is transformative; it inspires dynamic social movements and hopes for a better world. How can we overcome this crisis and build a public agenda for higher education that brings together students, faculty, staff, K-12 educators, and the wider community? Join us for the conversation.
