Welcome to the Wiki of Adjuncts United

Adjuncts United is dedicated to protecting, advocating, and ensuring the rights of all part-time faculty on the Syracuse University campus. We are a NYSUT/AFT affiliate. If you are part of our bargaining unit, and require information or assistance you are in the right place.
