I signed because it is wrong to terminate instructors who publicly opposed wage as well as budget cuts, and fire academics who tried to bestow better work load as well as improve working conditions for all of their coworkers. Moreover, it is awful that admin used the same reason of finances to be rid of opposition. While it is true all of the faculty who were fired worked hard, I know that Dr. Samantha Bankston has been one of the most hard working and caring instructors at SNC and so she did not deserve to be terminated for standing against poor working conditions. Dr. Bankston should be hired back to her full position without any limits on her ability to voice ways to improve a working environment.

Because I work in higher education and this is true all over the US. Those that do the work get the least compensation, the least credit, and are the most disposable

As a professor at the University of Washington I'm appalled by this administrative action. This is an unconscionable action with no justification.

There are rules. Even overpaid administrators should follow them.

I believe education, intellectual vigor, and knowledge. These are the priorities of a institution of higher learning. It is not a business.

Through friends that worked at and lived in Incline Village, I've heard horror stories about how poorly many staff are treated. The culture is rotten and they seem to be scrambling on how to save the business side of the organization. Often times, the staff are picked on first, instead of leadership. Remember, leadership led you to where your at - not the staff.

How disturbing that freedom of speech and dissent are being suppressed at a U.S. college.

I would like a detailed description of the cuttent purposes budget, where money is allocated, as well the salary Amounts of faculty. We pay very high tuition cost and have a right to information that impacts the quality of professors and the education delivered.
Want reason for terminations.
