Is October already almost over? It feels like it just began, and yet it has also been as full as a ripe pumpkin. There is so much to talk about this month that it seems almost impossible to cover everything that must be on your mind as you read this.
Because of that, we don’t really have one particular theme for this month’s issue, but rather a collection of themes, so that we can try to give attention to the various issues that are important right now and relevant to our community at GCC.
This month brings you a hodgepodge of relevant and relatable material. In addition to our regular columns, we have a few special articles for you, including a poignant and personal editorial about the conflict in Artsakh and a roundtable interview with a few folks from DSPS. And of course, you’ll also find the usual suspects: advocacy and pursuing change in Faculty United, a few words (and their etymological origins) in our Senate Update, CSEA Connection’s discussion of the Artsakh conflict, notes from the Classified Council, information on the rights of part-timers, governance and guacamole, Reaching Across with two new interviews, and, as always reading recommendations and milestones.
Stay safe and be well,
