Inspired by the Quebec student movement of 2012, the Student Union of Michigan (SUM) is an organizing platform based at the University of Michigan dedicated to fighting the privatization of higher education and instead building a truly democratic, open university run by students and workers. We stand in solidarity with student and worker struggles around the world.

  1. Hello SUM Members,

    My name is Shawn Warren. I have a PhD in philosophy and am an expatriate Canadian living in Redmond, WA. I have been working on responses to the crisis in HE that I think might be of interest to your organization. My blog (Professional Society of Academics) is a record of my approach to HE reform.

    As initiation I suggest the following posts:

    1) How HE can be moved from the capitalist to the social economy – http://professionalsocietyofacademics.blogspot.com/2013/01/higher-education-in-social-economy.html

    2) An original, alternative model for HE – http://professionalsocietyofacademics.blogspot.com/2013/07/a-new-tender-for-higher-education.html

    3) Progress toward free HE, the case of City College of San Francisco – http://professionalsocietyofacademics.blogspot.com/2013/12/progress-toward-free-higher-education.html

    I hope you find some use for this work in your struggles against the current model for HE as embodied by the University of Michigan.
