Together We're Stronger
By acting collectively, we can promote transparency and equity in workplace decisions such as salaries, benefits and teaching loads, workplace safety and grievance procedures that provide legally binding protections for workers and accountability for administrators. Together we can take steps to create an environment that better reflects the values we bring to our HSI, MSI, Land-Grant institution.
Higher Ed faculty members of NEA are united in providing a high-quality higher education, so that every student can attain their dreams. We represent all roles necessary to provide a rich, equitable education, from administrators to adjunct faculty, counselors to program coordinators.
We work at community and technical colleges, private and public colleges and universities, and minority-serving institutions such as historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs). We fight for access and affordability, fair pay and the workplace conditions that support student learning, including academic freedom, tenure, racial and social justice, and more.
