Introduction to Podcasts from the 44th Annual Conference

As part of the National Center’s educational and research mission, we have posted below podcasts from our 2017 annual conference at the CUNY Graduate
Center in New York. The podcasts represent a sampling of the quality presentations made at the conference on contemporary issues in collective bargaining
and labor relations in higher education.  We thank Becca Pulliam from Please Repeat the Question Productions and the CUNY Graduate Center's ICIT
