Student Support is Essential to the Success of UIS United Faculty!
Research shows that students benefit from a unionized faculty! Students on unionized campuses are more likely to stay in college and they graduate faster! Unionized faculty are able to spend more time advising and mentoring students. Unionized faculty help control administrative costs leading to lower overall university budgets and lower tuition costs. The goal of UIS UF is to create a better UIS, with a stronger focus on students’ education. Help us bring that about!
