Committee to Examine Class and Labor Issues

At the Council’s February meeting, Provost Earl Lewis announced that on February 3, 2011, he and Vice President for Finance and Administration Mike Mandl charged a new committee to examine issues of class and labor on the Emory campus. Composed of faculty, students, and staff and chaired by Professor of Psychology Nadine Kaslow and co-chaired by Vice President and Deputy to the President Gary Hauk, the committee will begin by focusing on Emory’s non-academic labor force, including questions of compensation and benefits, advancement, retention and turnover, and supervisory skill levels across the university.


“We see this as the first of a three or four phase conversation” to take place over twelve to eighteen months, Lewis said. “The first phase would deal with non-academic labor, the second with academic labor, and the third with relationships between members of the academic and non-academic labor forces. A fourth phase would involve our students and their relationship to both academic and non-academic labor.”
