2020 Advisory Forum
Special Lecturer Survey

This survey was developed with the input of Special Lecturers on the Advisory Forum. Our Advisory Forum asks that you complete both surveys, so that the Forum can inform the Bargaining Team about Special Lecturer opinions. There are over 200 Special Lecturers at Oakland University. Remember that your vote as Special Lecturer faculty is equal to that of a full-time faculty member of the OU-AAUP.

Questions from the AAUP Executive Committee

The OU-AAUP is engaged in a number of activities beyond bargaining and enforcing the Agreement through grievances, arbitrations and other legal actions. Examples of these activities are communication within the membership at OU and at AAUP chapters across Michigan, and consulting with the other collective bargaining groups on campus.
