Higher Education Faculty & Staff

We are faculty, staff, and graduate assistants at institutions of higher learning.

Together, we are united in providing a high-quality higher education, so that every student can attain their dreams. We represent all roles necessary to provide a rich, equitable education, from administrators to adjunct faculty, counselors to program coordinators.

We work at community and technical colleges, private and public colleges and universities, and minority-serving institutions such as historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs). We fight for access and affordability, fair pay and the workplace conditions that support student learning, including academic freedom, tenure, racial and social justice, and more.

Join us in advocating for public higher education on the federal level, and also explore our library of professional development guides for higher educators. Be sure to check out our College and University Data Analysis System (CUDAS) which enables you to research and compare data for your home institution to a group of similar institutions.
