faculty at USF are unionized. the university of san francisco faculty association is local 4269 of the AFL-CIO. i have a lot to learn about what this means and i look forward to learning more.
last night, the union hosted a dinner for all new faculty and their partners. the dinner was at savanna jazz, in the mission district, and was followed by live jazz.
between multiple orientations, numerous new faculty lunches, and last night, new profs at USF have had many opportunities to get to know each other - as colleagues and as friends. i cannot imagine a more interesting, engaged, and fun cohort of new professors.
