Caucus Meetings & Socials

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

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 caregiving. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Working Families Caucus. Zoom in!

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. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Pride Caucus.

Faculty of Color Caucus

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. Email Lynn Fujiwara at [email protected] if you are interested in joining the Faculty of Color Caucus.

Committees

Standing Committees meet regularly and are always looking for new members. If you are a UA member interested in serving on a committee, email us.

COMMUNICATIONS
