AASUA and “Hurt Feelings”: The Real Story is About Bureaucracy (Post by Kathleen Lowrey, Anthropology)

I attended the last 30 minutes of the fractious most recent AASUA Council planning to contribute to a discussion about the Leadership College scheduled as the final item on its agenda. When I arrived I found that a discussion of the budget had taken over the entire session, such that the last two agenda items (a presentation about academic freedom in light of events at the University of Saskatchewan, and the Leadership College discussion to which I had hoped to add my perspective as a General Faculties Council [GFC] representative) were in the end pre-empted. I want to begin by saying how refreshing it was to be in a room where contentious issues are still discussed vigorously. This is something that does not happen at GFC. There, dissent and challenge are given a polite and faintly disinterested hearing, as if to the squeaking of faraway dyspeptic mice. What (still) happens at AASUA Council is precious and increasingly rare. Nevertheless, I left worried that precisely this capacity may soon be lost.

Elsewhere, the problematic outcome of that Council meeting has been described as a matter of “hurt feelings.” This framing is, of course, a dismissal, and an effective one. Its power comes from what I would call its double-edged sexism. Because the people who were, indeed, hurt by the discussion and its outcome were all women, the “feelings” framing suggests that this was a sentimental girly problem that is therefore unserious and not relevant to everybody. Check your pockets, non-girls: you just got robbed, too. Let me explain how.

The budget discussion revolved around whether, and how many, course releases for committee chairs ought to be paid for with AASUA funds. The deliberation (to which I contributed) raised the point that for equity reasons expecting committee chairs to do this work for the AASUA in their spare time effectively meant that the pool of potential candidates would be shrunk in familiar ways. The chair of the Equity Committee resigned during the course of deliberations, an announcement to which the President responded with remarkable equanimity and which was clearly greeted in one part of the room with smug glee. But, I hear some of you saying, so what? These are hard times: we can’t pay for everything! Fripperies go to the wall.

Oh dear. Which shell did you think the pea was under? The now-approved AASUA budget actually is hugely increased on the professional bureaucracy side. Its offices are being renovated, it is going to be hiring new staff, and we dues-paying constituents are not allowed to know the annual salary of its Executive Director. The only slashing that took place was of the rather paltry allowances on the side that, officially at least, is supposed to provide direction and guidance to the whole enterprise: the side populated by our elected representatives and the committee chairs they designate. If the professional bureaucratic side is growing and becoming more complex (and it is), the work of the constituent side must correspondingly grow and become more complex. It doesn’t matter, really, if the people doing it are hard-working single moms of fractious crews of preschool children or single 50-something men with no partners, children, housepets, nor elderly relatives for whom they are responsible. The work is real and time-consuming and our elected representatives must be resourced to do it. This is relevant to all constituents, and we can and should insist on it because our dues underwrite the whole shebang.

It’s no accident, in my view, that a budget squabble that ended in a bureaucratic triumph took over an entire session, trumping any address of substantive content (remember that foregone discussion of academic freedom, and the one about the Leadership College which is why I was there at all). What worries me is that I already know what that kind of meeting looks like. I’ve been attending them for a year now as a representative at GFC.

News from South of the Border: University of Oregon Strengthens Academic Freedom Policy (28 May 2014)

So! Even as the Globe and Mail was yesterday publishing University of Alberta President Indira Samarasekera’s response to events at the University of Saskatchewan, an American university President was issuing a dramatically different statement on the matter of academic freedom.

In the Globe and Mail article, President Samarasekera declares that according to the principle of academic freedom:

faculty members can pursue their research, teaching and scholarship in their search for new ideas, discoveries and truth. Based on critical thought, knowledge of their subject area and insightful research, they can take intellectual risks and comment on issues they know and understand deeply – even when their opinions are unpopular or run counter to current thinking.

She then insists that “academic freedom” and “freedom of speech” are to be understood as different, unrelated phenomena: Continue reading

“Anarcho-Syndicalism” Works! Or why we should export our shared governance model to other organizations rather than import management fads from business

Guest Post by Marko Živković, Associate Professor, Anthropology

The recent sacking of Dr. Buckingham for blowing the whistle on the University of Saskatchewan’s TransformUS restructuring process and its top administrators’ attempt to gag any public dissent helps us see the lines of the battle currently raging over universities with extraordinary clarity.

Consider the recent opinion piece by Lawrie McFarlane for The StarPhoenix. I am grateful to Jeremy Richards for providing the link to this OpEd on his Whither the U of A blog. I highly respect Whither as a forum for the critical voices of my colleagues, but the degree to which some of the commentators (alas, mostly anonymous) agree with McFarlane creates an acute case of cognitive dissonance to which I wish to respond. McFarlane was deputy minister of advanced education in Saskatchewan during the 1980s, and his opinion piece may well be the most explicit and succinct statement of the neoliberal attack on higher education that I have ever seen. It thus offers a perfect example of what we in the Academy should be up in arms against.

McFarlane’s OpEd gives us the basic ingredients of the movement to defund, destabilize, undermine, and finally privatize public universities, all of them stated by McFarlane quite explicitly: Continue reading

Canada’s Academics Invited to Sign On to Open Letter to University of Saskatchewan Board Chair, Ms. Susan Milburn

Update at Noon, 21 May 2014:

It has been brought to my attention that there may be international academics keen to sign this letter. Please, anyone who wishes to sign on do so! I have had notes from faculty at the University of Saskatchewan declaring how much the support of those who are signing on is appreciated. Support from all around the planet is welcomed! Canada’s public university system, one of the strongest in the world, should be amongst the world’s most ardent supporters of the principle of academic freedom, and I am sure all those who have already signed on will be deeply appreciative of the support of anyone anywhere on the planet who wishes to add their name to this effort before the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan meets again next Monday. In short, distribute widely!

Update at 9 am, 20 May 2014:

Thank you again to all of you who have signed the Open Letter below to Ms. Susan Milburn, Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan. A  first version of the letter was sent to Ms. Milburn and the University Secretary yesterday afternoon; a second, was sent just before the start of last night’s emergency meeting; and a third version, which includes signatures that came in as of early this morning, has now gone. Given, however, that the Board of Governors has chosen to deliberate further on last week’s events at a meeting scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday before it takes any decisions, you are welcome — indeed, encouraged! — to continue signing on to the letter via the “comments”/reply function at the bottom of the formal list of signatories. From these I can prepare a further PDF to go to Ms. Milburn and the University Secretary on Friday afternoon.

Update: Thank you to all of you who have written in to add your signature to the letter. We are preparing to send the letter to Ms. Milburn within the next hour, and ask for your patience as we continue to enter signatures. All of the signatures that come in by the time we send it for the first time will be “approved” here so that they are registered on the site even if they have not yet been formally transferred to the letter. We will continue to add signatures, and send an updated letter later on in the day.

* * *

We invite you to join the signatories below in signing on to this open letter to the Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan, Ms. Susan Milburn. Further to events at the University of Saskatchewan last week, an emergency meeting of the Board has been called for tomorrow evening. The signatory list will be updated here this evening, tomorrow morning, and tomorrow afternoon just before the letter is formally sent to Ms. Milburn. We encourage you to distribute this widely so that your colleagues may also have the opportunity to sign on to the letter. If you would like to sign, you may either reply by comment here, with your name and full title as you would like it to appear on the letter, or send the information via email to sale@ualberta.ca.

Open Letter to the Chair of the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan, Ms. Susan Milburn

Dear Ms. Milburn,

We write as academics across Canada gravely concerned with developments this week at the University of Saskatchewan. We understand that you have called an emergency meeting of the University’s Board of Governors for Monday evening, and write to underscore for you just how grievous we take the week’s events to be.

On Wednesday morning, Canada learned that the Dean of the University’s School of Public Health, Robert Buckingham, had been fired from his positions as Dean and as full professor by the University’s Provost Brett Fairbairn for actions characterized as “egregious conduct and insubordination.” On Thursday, the President of the University of Saskatchewan issued a press release in which she indicated that the University was reversing its position in part by offering Professor Buckingham a new tenured position. We wish to affirm that we take the actions of the Provost to constitute a gross infringement of the principles of academic freedom, and the action and declarations of the President on Thursday reflect an inadequate understanding of these principles.

Specifically, we support the Executive of the University of Saskatchewan’s Faculty Association in the statement that it issued late on Wednesday, in which it declared that while Professor Buckingham, as Dean, “is not and never has been, in-scope of the USFA, the USFA Executive Committee views the steps taken by Senior Administration as contrary to the Canadian Association of University Teachers’ Policy on Academic Freedom for Academic Administrators and an attack on the principle of academic freedom.”

We also affirm our support for the Canadian Association of University Teachers’ Policy of Academic Freedom for Academic Administrators, especially clause 4, which states:

Where a decision has been achieved by consensus, by majority vote, or through the exercise of legitimate authority, that fact does not constrain members of the academic staff, including those holding administrative appointments, from exercising their academic freedom by criticizing the decision.

In our view, Professor Buckingham did something of vital importance in defense of these principles when he made public his critique of administrative decisions being taken at the University of Saskatchewan in regard to its “TransformUS” process. Deans at Canada’s public universities must be free to criticize and speak publicly against decisions being taken by their university administrations. Where they are not free, as Professor Buckingham has declared, to represent their faculty, staff, and students when they find that a decision being taken by their university is not in their best interests, the integrity of the institution and its collegial governances is put at serious risk.

Events at the University of Saskatchewan this week have, moreover, implications for Canadian post-secondary institutions more generally. We ask that the Board of Governors of the University of Saskatchewan keep all of this in mind in its deliberations on Monday evening. The principles of the academy, academic freedom especially, should always be vigorously advanced and studiously protected by the academic administrators of a given institution for they are central not only to the integrity of the academy but to the flourishing of the democratic principles of representation and free speech in Canadian society. Where there is any lapse in this regard, it is vital that a Board of Governors reaffirm these principles and take action consistent with them in the name of all public universities in Canada.

Yours sincerely,

Update: The Situation at the University of Saskatchewan and the Academic Freedom of Academic Administrators

Yesterday the University of Saskatchewan partly reversed the decision its Provost, Brett Fairbairn, took on Wednesday morning in regard to the position and tenure of the Dean of the School of Public Health, Robert Buckingham. On Wednesday morning, Buckingham was deprived of his position as Dean, fired from his position as a tenured professor, and apparently informed he could never return to campus for a letter that he had written to members of the Government of Saskatchewan and others the day before. The letter charges the University of Saskatchewan’s President with subjecting administrators, especially Deans, to a regime of silence in regard to the restructuring process, “TransformUS,” underway at the University of Saskatchewan. Yesterday, asserting that the principle of tenure is “sacrosanct,” the President declared in interviews that the University had “blundered” and Professor Buckingham would now freshly be “offered a tenured faculty position.”

With this decision, the President of the University of Saskatchewan seems to affirm that faculty at the University of Saskatchewan have academic freedom. The President’s decision leaves entirely in question, however, whether the University of Saskatchewan’s administrators do. Asked by the CBC’s “As It Happens” whether she stood behind the Provost’s declaration in his letter of 14 May 2014 that by issuing a public statement about his disagreement with the administration’s plans Professor Buckingham had engaged in “egregious conduct and insubordination,” the President declared “I do, I do.” Continue reading

Fairbairn’s Firing of Buckingham Must Not Go Unanswered

When I first saw the letter below circulating on Twitter as of mid-day, seemingly issued on the letterhead of the office of the Provost and VP Academic at the University of Saskatchewan and signed by the current occupant of those positions, Brett Fairbairn, I paused for a moment to question whether it was real. Could any Provost or VP Academic in Canada truly believe that s/he can charge a colleague with “egregious conduct and insubordination” for his or her expression of concern about decisions being taken by administrators at his or her institution, and issue the kind of summary judgment to which this letter speaks?

USask Provost Letter to Dr. Buckingham 14May14The presumption of this letter and the decision taken by the University of Saskatchewan’s Provost and VP Academic is that members of the administration of a public university in Canada are not members of a collegium responsible to the public, but rather members of a secretive corporate elite that is free to require loyalty to itself over commitment to the academic values of reasoned critique and public declarations in the public interest. Whose interests does any such Provost believe he is serving when he issues such a letter in such haste that its mere twelve sentences can contain two noun/verb agreement errors? And from what authority does he believe he acts when he claims that he can not only fire a colleague who has questioned an administrative decision but declare that colleague “banned” from campus “for life”? 

This is the action not of an academic defending the academy against “conduct” that he believes is threatening to it, but action akin to that of a feudal sovereign. Continue reading
