Making Informed Decisions on Adjunct Faculty Union Organizing

This website provides information about union organizing efforts at DePaul and unionization generally. We respect the rights of faculty to make a fully informed decision on whether a union is right for them based on the facts, and this website was created for that purpose. We encourage you to explore this website and stay engaged by using the “Submit Your Questions” and “Sign Up for Updates” features.

Thank you for visiting. We look forward to continuing a direct dialogue with you—listening, reflecting, sharing viewpoints and making positive change.
