Bluegrass to Advance Faculty Rights

August 18, 2009

At a meeting of the American Association of University Professors this summer, a trio from the University of Akron -- the Ad Hoc, Post-Tenure Under-Appreciated Band -- performed works on the priorities of universities, management in higher ed and other topics. Among the lyrcis:

The English Department is coming down
To make way for a rock climbing wall
Your graduate Milton seminar
Is now meeting in the hall
Let's freeze the library budget in time
To build a sports facility
Corporate acclaim,
Say that in the name of a University!
I say Corporate acclaim now say that in the name of a University!

Full lyrics for three songs as well as video of the concert may be found on the AAUP Web site.
