Getting a better contract

NEA-NM Higher Ed maintains a comprehensive, searchable database of college and university staff and faculty contracts and salary schedules. We’ve trained higher-ed leaders in the growing practice of bargaining for the common good. All to help you get the contract you deserve.

Becoming a better educator

NEA-NM’s partnership with the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network provides a robust, online library of Thriving in Academe guides. We also provide a variety of training opportunities and resources that Higher Education Faculty and staff can take advantage of. This includes workshops at the NEA National Leadership Summit, the NEA National Education Support Professional (ESP) Conference, and the pre-summit NEA Higher Ed conference.

Higher Ed information right to your inbox

NEA Higher Ed members get the scoop from the NEA Higher Ed eAdvocate, which provides opportunities to advocate on federal legislation, learn about trends on campuses, and more.

Creating a better campus where you work

NEA’s Representative Assembly has committed to measures to promote safe campuses, equity for contingent faculty, and a balanced approach to online learning. NEA is also working to eradicate institutional racism in every level of education, to protect immigrant students and employees, as well as LGBTQ students and employees, and to organize faculty and staff on HBCU campuses.

And save money, too!

You don’t join a union for discounts at restaurants and hotels… but NEA Member Benefits also offers financial services around home ownership, student loan repayment, and retirement planning, plus member rates on insurance access to the NEA long-term care program.
