New: President O'Brien Shares Position on Faculty Unionization

SCU Better Together

As we begin another academic year, work continues to ensure Santa Clara is an environment where all faculty – including our adjunct faculty and lecturers – are valued, respected, and have a voice. We remain committed to this work so all our faculty can build meaningful careers at Santa Clara.

Together, we are focused on:

Housing & Compensation

Improving housing and compensation, especially for our lowest-paid faculty

Career Stability

Offering more job stability and certainty, while providing clearer pathways for advancement

Voice & Respect

Increasing share of voice of our adjunct faculty and lecturers and promoting a culture of greater respect for all faculty and staff

This website is intended to share the work underway to address the concerns that have been raised by our adjunct faculty and lecturers. Please check back often!
