Two bits of EAA note

First off, I heard via a loyal EMUTalk reader that the EMU Student Senate passed a resolution where “Urge the EMU Regents to Sever Ties with the EAA.” A quote from (I think?) a press release:

This evening the EMU Student Senate voted in favor of a resolution (#101-004) to “strongly urge” the Regents to terminate the contract that created the EAA. The Senators heard from Guest Speaker Steven Camron and deliberated President Desmond Miller’s draft resolution. The focus of the resolution was on the negative impact this affiliation has had on students, the graduates and faculty at the College of Education, and the University at large.

Here’s a link to the PDF of the actual resolution with all of its “whereas”-s and such.

Second, I heard that this afternoon, the Michigan Public Radio show “Stateside” is going to be doing a show about the EAA. I don’t know a whole lot more about it than just that, but it might be interesting. It’s on at 3:00 PM and rebroadcast at 10:00 PM.

  1. Which is it? Are the “urging” or “strongly urging” the Regents. I hope it is the latter, if you are going to urge the Regents to do something, go strong or go home.

    Personally, I would go with: “We super-strongly urge the Board of Regents to terminate the contract. With extreme prejudice.”


  2. I heard part of the Stateside show. It seems like a big problem with the EAA was that it never really got funded. Additionally, and maybe adding to the first problem, it has an administrative structure with multiple points of failure. It sounds like it’s been everyone’s stepchild from an unhappy marriage.


  3. Not EAA-related, but breaking — check out the Eastern Echo’s coverage of the march on campus right now (Monday night) in response to the grand jury decision in Ferguson, MO – if you’re online.
