Dear Seattle University Community,
The Student Government of Seattle University (“SGSU”) has
been in dialogue on the topic of adjunct and contingent faculty unionization
since December, 2013. During this time we have spoken with students,
faculty, staff, community members, and administrators who are passionate about
Seattle University and the values our community upholds.
The statement linked below is the product of months of research
and dialogue done independently and autonomously by SGSU––free of any manipulation and coercion by any party. This statement
is by undergraduate students and for undergraduate students.
As the third party in the university’s system of shared-governance,
the Student Government of Seattle University respectively enters this
conversation as an independent and unanimous body.
