While SIU is currently involved in a strike over transparency in definitions of “financial exigency” for purposes of furloughs and layoffs, our colleagues around the country have also had experience with this issue. Helpful perspective about the importance of transparency in this process is available in a report released by the American Council on Education. See especially the section “Faculty Consultation in Times of Budget Crises,” which begins on page 16 of the report, available at the link below. Throughout that section, the council articulately advocates for the importance of faculty participation throughout the process of creating and applying standards for layoff and other decisions related to financial exigency. This is required reading for all of us.
