What is UUP?

The United University Professions (UUP) is the largest higher education union in the nation, representing over 35,000 academics and professionals in 800 job titles across the SUNY system and in SUNY administration. The University at Albany Chapter of UUP works with statewide UUP to improve working conditions on our campus, advocate for academics and professionals, and keep higher education affordable and accessible for students. A union's strength is in its members. We encourage all academics and professionals, part-time and full-time, contingent or tenure track to get involved in our chapter and affect positive change on the UAlbany campus and beyond. Join us at events, participate in committees, engage in community activism, share concerns and propose solutions.
