Political Action

Our national staffing campaign strives to enact two core beliefs: one, our system of higher education benefits from having a full-time instructional workforce with job protections and, two, all faculty members, whether working full- or part-time, should be compensated fairly. As a starting point for this campaign, AFT has drafted model legislation, including a comprehensive Faculty and College Excellence Initiative and also several alternative incremental approaches. These documents are intended to set forth our principles. However, we recognize that this campaign may differ from state to state and situation to situation.
