CFA Unity Campaign continues

Tabling for Unity Week at CSU Fresno

Across the CSU system, faculty are invited to participate in Unity events, focusing on the shared interests and combined power that all faculty gain when we join together in solidarity. The statewide Unity Campaign, which kicked off on April 22 and will run through May 3, highlights activities that emphasize the ways Lecturer and tenure line faculty work and interests are interconnected.

Hall walking on the Chico campus

Unity events are scheduled around the state, range from 5k runs to bargaining meetings, hall walking, happy hours, and educational listening sessions.  For details or to get involved, please contact your local CFA chapter!
