Support Graduate Employees

The GEO is currently circulating this Statement of Support to all members and organizations of the campus community. If your organization would like to support Graduate Employees on this campus, please consider issuing this or a similar statement.
“We, members of the campus community, value the critical role played by graduate employees at the University of Illinois. Accordingly, we are alarmed by the Provost’s proposed changes to the graduate tuition waiver policy and its potential implications for the accessibility of graduate education and the excellence of instruction and research. We, therefore, demand that the Administration halt any processes currently underway to transform the tuition waiver policy and insist that any future deliberations take place in a transparent and democratic fashion in which graduate employees are formally represented.”
