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.

Loyola grad workers smile bright with dental coverage

Graduate workers at Loyola University Chicago secured a big win. Beginning August 1, Loyola’s graduate workers will receive free dental coverage, in addition to their current health insurance from the university.

This win was a result of workers uniting together to fight for the change they needed. It's just one win as Loyola’s graduate workers keep the pressure on the administration to recognize their status as workers and demand the university to negotiate directly with them.
