Brown, Citing NLRB Ruling, Voices Support for Student Discussions

After the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling that graduate students at Columbia University are employees and have the right to unionize, Brown University leaders said in a statement that they will comply with the decision and support discussions among graduate students as they explore whether or not unionization is right for them. Prior to the NLRB's August 23 decision, Dean Andrew G. Campbell echoed Provost Richard M. Locke's call for constructive dialogue about graduate education and graduate student unionization in the coming weeks and months. "This moment allows us to focus on the contributions of graduate students to the teaching and research mission of Brown University," Dean Campbell said. See FAQs and resources
