RALLY OUTSIDE THE  COLUMBIA COLLEGE BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING

DECEMBER 6TH & 7TH | NOON | 600 S. MICHIGAN

Students, faculty, & staff of Columbia College will rally with supporters outside the Board of Trustees’ meeting to express their grievances. Join us to support Columbia College’s staff, faculty, and students, who have had little to no say in major changes and cuts to programs resulting from the prioritization process which is underway. Faculty and staff have not received cost of living pay increases in 3 years, yet tuition continues to increase. Just how much has our school’s cost of lving increased? Where is our money going? Organized by concerned students, faculty, and staff.
