Who is the SEIU Local 925 Higher Education Faculty Chapter?
We are an organization of faculty across Washington State who are committed to quality education for all students, affordable access to higher education, and fairness for all faculty. We believe we can steer higher education in the right direction if we collectively organize together. We hope you’ll join us in preserving the mission of higher education!
Why Become A Member?
Once considered middle class employment, many university faculty now work part-time for low pay and little job security, few benefits or even office space. Students are increasingly saddled with crushing debt that could take a lifetime to pay off. Parents struggle to stay afloat in the face of skyrocketing tuition bills. Many universities, and their corporate Boards of Trustees, are shifting investment away from educators and affordable higher education in favor of a burgeoning class of administrators, expensive sports programs and extravagant student services.
This crisis in higher education has given rise to dozens of faculty organizing campaigns across the country which are forcing an unprecedented national discussion over the “adjunctification” and corporatization of higher education, and what it means for faculty, students and society as a whole. In Washington State, faculty organizing with SEIU Local 925 have led the way in that national movement.
