Throughout the year, the union holds social events for members to meet colleagues across campus. In the past, these have included a "Welcome" luncheon or social for new faculty, an annual Holiday Party, and smaller monthly meetups over drinks.
Tenure and Promotion Workshops
Each year, the Union presents workshops for tenure and promotion in collaboration with the Office to Advance Women, Equity & Diversity. These workshops discuss strategies for helping junior faculty advance in the University. Panels of faculty and administrators advise the faculty on many topics, including gathering strong recommendation letters, focusing research and achieving balance of research, teaching, and service.
Chapter Meetings, which occur at least once in each of the Fall and Spring terms, are important meetings for the Chapter to democratically sets its goals and policy for the upcoming period. The Chapter membership hears reports from the Executive Committee, the Bargaining Team, the Grievance Team, etc., and helps influences policy for the upcoming period which the various committees and teams will then help carry out.
Spring Chapter Meetings are usually held in February or March. At the spring Chapter Meeting, Officers and Senators are elected for terms beginning on the first date of the Summer academic term. Only UFF-FIU members are eligible to vote in Chapter Elections! Please join us and cast your ballot.
