Debunking the claim that it’s about faculty self-interest

Last Tuesday, the UW Milwaukee Academic Staff Senate added their body to the growing number of UW governance groups around the state that have passed no-confidence resolutions.  With that vote – the first by non-tenure-track UW employees, they demolish the myth deliberately cultivated by Governor Walker and others that the no-confidence votes have been strictly about faculty self-interest in connection with the weakening of tenure provisions.

It’s not about self-interest, it’s about values and about responsible stewardship of one of Wisconsin’s finest public assets.
