About Us


UW Faculty Forward is the faculty union at the University of Washington. We are led by a faculty steering committee with dues-paying members across campuses, departments, tenure status and ranks.

UW Faculty Forward members are committed to quality education for all students, affordable access to higher education, excellence in research and scholarship, and fairness for all faculty. We believe we can help steer higher education in the right direction if we act collectively, as members of our union. For us, equity is excellence. We hope you'll join us in preserving the mission of higher education.

We work in partnership with SEIU Local 925, one of the largest education unions in the country. SEIU contributes staff time and expertise to a faculty-governed movement.

SEIU represents contingent faculty at schools including the University of Chicago, Duke, the University of Southern California, Washington University, Tufts, Boston University, and both tenure track and non tenure track faculty in the Cal State system. In Washington State, SEIU Local 925 represents faculty at Antioch University and Seattle University, as well as the classified staff at the UW.
