The Higher Ed Hub is the blog for the United Academics of Philadelphia (UAP). We publish original blog posts, essays and art-based projects, and we share web content that is relevant to higher education, especially in the Philadelphia region.

United Academics of Philadelphia, American Federation of Teacher’s (AFT) Local 9608 is an organization that seeks to unify and support the nearly 15,000 adjunct instructors currently working in Philadelphia-area colleges. As a vital but often underrepresented element of higher education, we believe that together we can accomplish what we cannot achieve as individuals.  To ensure respect, security, fair pay and benefits from our institutions of employment, UAP is advocating for the unionization of adjuncts in the Philadelphia region.

All academic faculty can become UAP members – adjuncts, non-tenure track contracted, tenure track, and tenured academics. Support our work by becoming a member here
