Howard Bunsis, Ph.D., J.D., of Eastern Michigan University joined the Fordham University Faculty Senate as a representative of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) on Sept. 23 to talk about the university’s finances. The forum follows the imposition of an unnegotiated salary raise by the administration as the Senate considers legal action against the administration.
Faculty Senate President Anne Fernald, Ph.D. introduced Bunsis, reminding the assembled faculty of the situation.
Bunsis took the audience through his analysis of the university’s financial decisions and broke down the revenue streams, showing that the portfolio went from $450,000,000 to $720,000,000 in the last eight years.
