We host monthly meetings, write open letters, and work with UF Governance and faculty groups in our advocacy efforts. We also provide advice and support for individual faculty members who are having contract issues, undergoing salary or workload negotiations, are facing harassment, or need representation at high-stakes meetings with administrators.
