Goshen College Inaugurates President Rebecca Stoltzfus

Goshen College Inaugurates President Rebecca Stoltzfus

February 20, 2018

“Goshen College (IN) is all the people who taught, loved or worked here,” recited a group of Goshen College students as they kicked off the official inauguration ceremony of their new president, Rebecca Stoltzfus. Thus began a presentation of true stories about Goshen College alumni, from an undocumented immigrant nursing student to a member of the resistance during wartime. The stories emphasized the school's Mennonite roots of treating education as more than knowledge acquisition, but as “a moral activity,” according to the Goshen College mission statement.

Realities of Trump-Era NLRB

Realities of Trump-Era NLRB

February 15, 2018

Graduate student union organizers on private campuses hailed a 2016 decision from the National Labor Relations Board saying that teaching and research assistants at Columbia University were in fact employees entitled to collective bargaining rights. Graduate unions at other private institutions flooded the board with petitions for elections and, in a number of cases, gained majority approval. That was then. In a sign of how much things have changed, three unions withdrew petitions pending review by the board within the last week.
