Teaching While Black

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

“For any black faculty member who has ever felt imposed upon or discriminated against for reasons having nothing to do with your abilities, you may have been discovered to be TWB – Teaching While Black. Even for black folk who think they share MFB (most favored black) status at their college, the rules of Teaching While Black still apply.” – KC Williams

Dear Gregg, if I may,

We have known each other for quite some time, and I was delighted in my new position to be reminded of your enduring commitments—to students, to great journalism, and to causes that matter in the workplace. I see that you had written the Chancellery about your Moveon.org petition to support the New York State Healthy Workplace Bill, and that you are calling for CUNY to be a “leader in promoting healthy workplaces.” From my new position in the Central Office, I am very pleased to assure that CUNY is already a strong advocate for safe workplaces and has put policies, procedures (e.g., requiring annual workplace violence training for all CUNY employees, Workplace Violence Prevention Training Administrators at all CUNY campuses and the central office) and resources, (eg and) in place to ensure that CUNY is a safe environment for its students and employees.

Gregg, please know that we take the matter of safe workplaces very seriously, in practice and spirit as well as in policy, as I know you do. I wish you every success always.

Sincerely,

Vita

Vita C. Rabinowitz
