Description

Dear UNLV Faculty,

The Nevada Faculty Alliance is a voluntary faculty union focused on advancing the academic freedom, shared governance and the financial security of full-time and part-time academic and administrative faculty through advocacy, organizing, and nurturing strong alliances. I want to tell you about some of the policy and practice activities in which we have most recently been engaged.

We will discuss the various emails sent to members from an annonymous source and discuss your ideas about changes in affiliation with AAUP and your level of interest in collective bargaining at UNLV. NFA members and potential members are invited to our meeting which will be held in the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs Dean’s Conference Room, 5th floor. Free box lunch will be served.

Admission Information

The meeting is open to all academic and professional staff. Both current and potential NFA members are invited to attend and enjoy a free lunch and lively discussion.

The NFA advocates for quality education for the common good of our communities by promoting dialogue, and effective policies and procedures based on these core principles:

  • Advocacy and action for faculty and staff as workers in the service of the public good;  defense of academic freedom in all its manifestations, including the American institution of tenure rights; and ensuring academic rigor and educational quality on behalf of faculty, students and the community through shared governance of the universities and colleges. 
  • Access, inclusion and diversity for students, faculty and staff, and the administration they are governed by. All are valued as a reflection of our communities. 
  • Affordability and funding that emphasize access to the citizens of Nevada pursuing higher education. We advocate for the funding to support an educational infrastructure that will diversify Nevada’s economy.
  • Academic achievement, exemplified in both quantitative and qualitative measures, and outcomes for individual students as well as the community they call home.
