About Us

Right now the future is uncertain. Our state government has made deep cuts to funding, has pushed for radical privatization, and attacks academic freedom and progressive programming. Our campuses are being run like corporations and Wall Street, not like the bedrock public institutions of education and service they ought to be - the institutions we deserve.

More and more, campuses across Tennessee rely on low-wage labor at the expense of full-time jobs with benefits, regular raises, job protections - and the dignity and respect we've earned. But it doesn't have to be that way. UCW is standing up for change, from right on campus to the hall of the legislature. Join us!
