The Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts (PHENOM) is excited to announce a new partnership with the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA). PHENOM will be providing stipends to MTA members on at least eight campuses to coordinate and maintain PHENOM chapters at institutions of public higher education across Massachusetts. Funding will also be available for a Student Organizer on the campus.

PHENOM chapters engage the campus community in advocating for accessible, affordable, and well-funded public higher education through involvement in statewide and campus-based education, organizing, and advocacy. Campus Organizers must make a commitment through Spring 2016 and will receive support and guidance from PHENOM’s staff and the entire cohort of campus organizers. See the attached job description for more information about the position.

PHENOM is excited to strengthen its relationships with its constituencies and increase its presence on campuses and in communities across the state. This will ensure increased and more effective advocacy for the accessibility and affordability of quality public higher education in Massachusetts.

PHENOM will begin accepting applications immediately, with the hopes of awarding the positions by the end of November, to allow for initial planning in the Fall semester for an exciting public launch of the program in January 2015. To apply, please send a letter of interest highlighting why you think you would be a good candidate for this position, along with a short resume/curriculum vitae, to PHENOM’s Executive Director, Natalie Higgins at, by November 10th.
