Webcasts and Podcasts from the 2014 Annual Conference

The National Center’s 41st Annual Conference, which took place on April 6-8, 2014, was a major success with quality presentations examining diverse topics including issues relating to contingent faculty, social media and academic freedom, bullying, the future of pensions in academia, on-line learning and intellectual property.  The success of this year’s conference would not have been possible without the support of Hunter COLLEGE AND the hard work of numerous Hunter COLLEGE AND CUNY staff and conference volunteers. The conference was underwritten by a grant from TIAA-CREF with additional funding from the Segal Company.
