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. The provost's message addresses the pending decision of the National Labor Relations Board about the status of graduate students at private universities, which is expected later this summer. The NLRB has received arguments for and against reconsidering their status as students, as they are under current law, or as employees with the right to unionize. "This moment allows us to focus on the contributions of graduate students to the teaching and research mission of Brown University," says Dean Campbell. See FAQs and resources.
