Flyer for Open the Books event, April 10, 2014

Rutgers is a state university whose finances are open to the public in theory, but recent history shows the reality is much murkier. Despite mammoth sports subsidies and managerial bloat, students, faculty and staff face cuts and fee hikes that indicate Rutgers’ Old Queens management has misplaced priorities.

That’s why faculty, students and staff have invited celebrated accounting expert and Secretary-Treasurer of the National AAUP, Dr. Howard Bunsis, to be the featured speaker at our Open the Books event. Dr. Bunsis, Professor of Accounting at Eastern Michigan University, will present an exposé of Rutgers’ financial situation and answer questions.

Faculty and staff union reps, along with student organizers, will also be on hand to help coordinate our next steps to Reclaim Rutgers.

As we count down to April 10, let us know how you’ll be a part of this landmark event!
