We’d like to thank both Ian and Tobi for running for this new officer position. This new officer is an important structural change within the union and the result of careful planning, deliberation, and our democratic processes.
We are pleased to announce that Tobi Rosenberg will be our first ever Adjunct Affairs Officer, and will begin her term beginning this Fall Quarter, 2022. Please see her bio below and thank her for being willing to serve.
Chace Stiehl, Acting President
Tobi Rosenberg: I am pleased to be able to run for BCAHE’s new Adjunct Affairs Officer position, which reflects our faculty’s dedication to addressing adjunct faculty working conditions on our campus and across the state.
I have been an active member of the BCAHE Executive Council since 2013, serving as a council member; Secretary-Treasurer; and Vice President. I have represented both full-time and adjunct faculty on the Contract Bargaining and Labor-Management teams since 2014. As the Washington Educational Association’s (WEA) Adjunct Representative to the Legislative Committee, I advocate for community and technical college faculty and students in Olympia. My recent collaboration with other labor and community groups, for example, led to the legislation of 200 new state-funded full-time faculty CTC positions.
I would be honored to serve in the AAO position to ensure that adjunct faculty are well represented in the effort to build and maintain a campus community that we can be proud of.
