“I want to thank the members of the negotiation team for working together over the past few months to develop a tentative agreement that addresses our current fiscal challenges, maintains competitive compensation and benefits, and allows us to continue to keep tuition costs low for our students,” Dr. Jeff Bauer, SSU Interim President, said. “Our faculty and administrators share in advancing our mission of preparing today’s students to succeed in tomorrow’s world — and are leading efforts that strengthen the institution and its service to students and the community.”
