Rally to Halt the Academic Partnerships Contract

Date: 
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 - 11:00am to 11:30am

City:

Join EMUFT, EMU-AAUP, and the campus community for a rally in front of Welch Hall to halt EMU's contract with Academic Partnerships, a private, for-profit firm in Texas, to market EMU-branded degrees entirely online -- with no in-person classroom instruction. These degrees will carry the EMU name. But they won't have the quality, scholarship and service that are hallmarks of a true EMU education.

It's time to hit the pause button and send this secretive deal to the EMU faculty for a thorough review.

Welch Hall, Ypsilanti, MI 48197, United States
