Yesterday at Edinboro University, students rallied in solidarity with faculty members facing retrenchment. Students waited outside of President Julie Wollman’s office and requested real answers on the future of their education. They pointed out that classes are already full so cutting faculty would be a disservice to the university.
Local media outlets across the state highlighted key points of the rally. Some stories include:
