In so many ways, this is the best time of the year, full of promise and great expectations. New students are excited, and maybe a little nervous, about entering the world of higher education, and returning ones will be all the more focused on their futures. The importance of your roles at our universities, colleges and medical institutions as educators, professionals, mentors and trusted advisors cannot be overstated.
At the same time, a new semester again raises all the challenges we face every year as we push our elected officials to properly support higher education in our state. NYSUT, your statewide union, is here to support you. We fight for your rights, your profession and your benefits in the workplace and in the halls of power.
We know our union members are completely committed to helping students, institutions and communities grow and thrive. We are proud to do everything needed to support you and your goals.
