Announcing Pre-election Agreement

June 21, 2018

Dear Graduate Students,

I look forward to welcoming new students to campus in the fall and hope that continuing students, on and off campus, are having a productive summer.

I write to share this letter from Provost Locke, which announces a pre-election agreement between Brown University and Stand Up for Graduate Student Employees (SUGSE). The agreement outlines shared principles and procedures that would govern a possible union representation election among eligible graduate students. The letter, which will be posted in tomorrow’s [email protected] and is included in this news item, also restates our commitment to an open, fair, and fact-based discussion and debate.

For additional information and resources about graduate student unionization, please visit the Be Informed website.
