Reach out to Students for MU Faculty, a student organization in support of the hundreds of Marquette faculty at risk of losing their jobs, and ask them how you can help their efforts.
Reach out to your advisor to find out how these cuts will affect you and your ability to complete your major(s)/minor(s). Here are some questions you can ask:
“I’ve been hearing that because Marquette has fired teachers, my class sizes might go up and I might have fewer course options. Could you tell me what changes are happening in this department? Did we fire any teachers? How will this affect my major and my time to graduation? What else should I expect?”
According to the faculty handbook, they have a major role to play in making recommendations. It's a good time to figure out whether they are getting the information they need to ensure that this is a fair, transparent and data-driven process. You can find a list of the current Faculty Council members here. You can also send an email to email@example.com
You can also submit your feedback directly to the workgroups through a campus-facing website. You will need to be connected on campus or through Marquette’s VPN, but you can follow this link to let the working groups know what you think about this process or to ask questions about whether the university has really exhausted all of its options prior to considering layoffs.
