ARPT Forum a rousing success
The first ever Union-sponsored forum on the Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure process at Pratt was well attended, by about 50 faculty from every department at Pratt. The event was historic in bringing together faculty from across the Institute to discuss Pratt's unique ARPT process, memorialized in Article XVI of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The discussion helped to clarify the faculty's role and rights in a process that is often greatly misunderstood, and uneven in its functioning across the Institute. This will be the first of many such necessary events.
