Local Benefits

Ensuring Due Process
We seek a fair due process when your employment is in question, especially based on academic freedom under AAUP guidelines.

Enhancing Shared Governance
In the context of fiscal constraints, we need to ensure that UCO’s governance is widely shared.

State Legislature and Faculty Voice
We also advocate at the state capitol on such issues as protecting our retirement pension and common-sense gun laws that might affect the classroom.

Colleague Networking
Get to know other faculty across campus.
