The United Faculty of Washington State represents all faculty at Central Washington University, Eastern Washington University, Western Washington University, and The Evergreen State College. We work to protect and enhance Public University education in Washington. Our commitment is to:
–Promote and defend public university education. High quality public university education transforms the lives of our students and drives Washington state’s economy.
–Insure academic freedom. Free inquiry and free speech are the cornerstones of a free society.
–Negotiate binding collective bargaining agreements. Our working conditions are our students learning conditions.
–Provide a powerful public university voice. The voice of the faculty must be heard in any discussion of education in Washington state.
