On Veterans’ Day 2014, several students, faculty, and staff will share stories about their military service. It’s the first of a planned series of annual events called “Stories from the Barracks to the Front”.

There are so many sounds that we tune out every day. It could be car traffic, the TV in the other room, the hum of a light bulb.

Western Michigan University’s Board of Trustees meets tomorrow. The trustees are set to consider whether to approve a three-year contract with the university’s faculty union.

The American Association of University Professors voted to accept the contract a few weeks ago, just before the old one ran out. If the trustees approve it, the AAUP contract would raise wages by two percent this academic year and the next, and by three-percent in the third.

The Board will also consider an agreement with a union that represents theater workers at WMU.

Last year, with the help of a Kellogg Grant for Racial Healing, more than 160 students, staff, and faculty at Western Michigan University were interviewed about race relations on campus. The result is a documentary theatre piece called Check Your Privilege, premiering this week.
