Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education and the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) have reached tentative agreement on a new contract, ending a three-day strike by faculty that began Wednesday.
Once final language is agreed to, the new contract, which would run through June 30, 2018, will go to the full APSCUF membership for a ratification vote. If ratified, the tentative agreement then would be brought to the State System’s Board of Governors for final approval.
“We are pleased to get to this point and look forward to the conclusion of the process,” said Board Chair Cynthia D. Shapira. “Once again, everyone can focus on what matters most — teaching and learning.”
Though the latest Celebrity Artist Series can appear diverse, the fall season is united under one theme: adaptation. From adaptations of works like Elf or an Agatha Christie mystery novel to adapting a whole piece off of an original idea, this season will feature unique translations of works and ideas to the stages of Bloomsburg University.
For the lover of all things Broadway, the fall season will start and end with a Broadway bang. Beginning with “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical,” the next hit musical could be created right here in Bloomsburg!

Bloomsburg University's football team, during the entire month of October, will be helping to fight pediatric cancer through the ThinkBIG Pediatric Cancer Fund. The program is entitled "Touchdowns For Pediatric Cancer."
Throughout the month, the football program will be recruiting friends, families, and fans of the Huskies to sign up to donate any amount per touchdown scored. The more fans Bloomsburg recruits - and the more touchdowns the Huskies score in the month of October - the more money raised for ThinkBIG. Fans can choose how much they want to donate per touchdown — some may pick $1 per score; others may pick $20 per touchdown — through the PledgeIT platform.
