Kalamazoo–Activist groups at Western Michigan University will rally at the flagpoles on main campus on Thursday to promote equity on campus as part of national Campus Equity Week. The week after Western’s full-time faculty union voted to censure Provost Timothy Greene for failing to act quickly to correct a gender pay gap, faculty and student groups will demonstrate to raise awareness about multiple examples of inequity around the university.

Members of the Professional Instructors Organization (PIO), representing more than 650 part-time instructors at WMU will join TAU on Thursday, to raise awareness for the history of cultural inequities in the way WMU treats part-time faculty.

Participants will meet at Wesley Peace  Center due to the rain at 12:30 pm this afternoon.
