United Academics is the faculty union at the University of Vermont, representing our full and part-time faculty. We are affiliated with AAUP, AFT and AFT-Vermont.

United Academics is committed to the advancement of academic quality at the University of Vermont and excellence among our faculty.

We believe that UVM makes a unique contribution to Vermont's system of public higher education and is crucial to Vermont's future.

We seek the best possible environment for teaching, learning and research, and believe that a diverse community of scholars is best served by equal treatment, academic freedom, shared governance, social justice and environmental sustainability.  

We seek fair employment practices for our members through the collective bargaining process. 

We advocate for the rights of the faculty, and, with others, for the rights of UVM employees, students and community members. 

We are committed to the betterment of the University of Vermont, the state of Vermont and our communities local, national and global.
