This Thursday is the National Day of Action to Defend Education. At UML student groups, faculty, and administration officials have banded together to call attention to the lack of state funding for higher education. Chancellor Marty Meehan has been invited as the keynote speaker for a summit in O'Leary 222 at 6 p.m. Dean of Student Affairs Larry Siegel will also speak. Sponsoring the event is the Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts (PHENOM), a group created in Feb. 2007 to network and mobilize members of higher education communities to fund public higher ed and make it more affordable and accessible.

Last years event was a day of action protest, which began on the South Campus quad and marched to the front of Cumnock Hall (pictured above). For more info, check out or
