Transforming Higher Education

Movement Milestones and Victories

We’re working to improve learning and teaching conditions and access to higher education, while standing up to end the trend toward a low-road, corporate-business model for education. More than 50,000 faculty and graduate workers are already united through SEIU Faculty Forward. Every day more educators, students and community members across the country are joining our fight to transform higher education. Here’s a look at what we’ve accomplished together so far.

Hillsborough Community College’s victory kicks off Florida Faculty Forward movement

Part-time faculty a Hillsborough Community College in Tampa voted to form a union. This victory marks the first SEIU faculty union election in Florida and at a public university in the South. Faculty at HCC are the latest to join what has become a fast-growing union movement, as faculty at more than 50 campuses have come together to take on a crisis in higher education.
