Caucus Meetings & Socials

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

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 fujiwara@uauoregon.org if you are interested in joining the Working Families Caucus.
