Though we have different titles — Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Instructor, Senior Instructor, Clinical Faculty, Visiting Faculty, Field Work Instructor, Postdoctoral Instructor, and more — we have common goals. We all endeavor to advance our respective fields, improve how we prepare and mentor the next generation of leaders in academia and beyond, and create a strong campus community built on learning and service.
LMU’s administration has repeatedly raised tuition on students and increased the size of its endowment, yet it refuses to adequately invest in the universities’ primary function: quality instruction and teaching. Instead, administrators have other priorities — fundraising, campus amenities, new legacy construction, and more.
The time has come for faculty, students, families, alumni, conscientious administrators, and faith communities to reclaim LMU and build alliances beyond our campus that create the power needed to reform higher education across the nation.
