During a time when the Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) administration is demanding austerity from faculty, staff and students it is amassing a huge surplus, expanding administration positions, and increasing the pay of administrators and their staff. The shortfall in the university's budget is paraded about to justify the cut backs in classes, tenured professors and support for students. This forum unpacks some typical deceptions used by NEIU and other universities to support a neo-liberal agenda through budget slight of hand, obfuscation and intimidation.

What does it mean to be censured by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP)? The result of a formal investigation of NEIU by the AAUP for suppression of academic freedom is also explained.

Russell Benjamin, Professor of Political Science and President of the Faculty Senate, speaks about Shared Governance and the efforts of the administration to undermine the faculty senate's constitution and its' process prerogative.

Professor of Justice Studies, Loretta Capeheart starts the presentation. Russell Benjamin, President of the Faculty Senate and professor of Political Science speaks last.

Questions and comments from the audience members were off mic. The gist of what was said is however maintained.
