Pride Caucus

The UA Pride Caucus aims to foster connection and solidarity among faculty from across campus who care about workplace and social issues related to gender identity and sexual orientation. It also works to support a sense of community across campus and across employee classifications by organizing events with other queer employee associations. It was formed in spring 2016 at the 19th Street Cafe with some beers and good conversation.

Faculty of Color Caucus

The Faculty of Color Caucus seeks to build on the legacy of a faculty-led initiative from before the days of the UA, the Faculty and Staff of Color Coalition. The caucus understands its constituency expansively. It is a forum for faculty who care about issues of equity, inclusion, and diversity in the workplace and off campus. Members come together regularly throughout the year for social events and to share experiences, concerns, and advice.

Working Families Caucus

The Working Families Caucus formed in response to concerns about the University of Oregon’s family and parental leave policies, as well as other concerns of working family members, like childcare. As we approach another round of bargaining, participation in this caucus’s meetings will be vital for ensuring our union pushes for policies in the next contract that really meet the needs of our members.

Caucus Meetings & Socials

Some caucuses are social, some are working groups. All are important for building community.
