I’m Goetz Wolff. I’ve been teaching in the UCLA Urban Planning Dept. for nearly 30 years. Technically, I’m retired, but I enjoy working with great grad students and they want me to keep teaching. However, the UC administration fails to recognize how important teaching lecturers are to the total academic program. It is the lecturers who are a critical component of the quality of the university experience for our students. Fortunately, we are a powerful union of instructors and librarians and we will not accept the disrespect by the UC administration.
