2024 Faculty Negotiations

Oakland University values our faculty members and respects their contributions, which are critical to student success, research, community engagement  and diversity. Our faculty are represented by the Oakland University Chapter of the American Association of University Professors.

The current contract between the university and OU-AAUP, which represents more than 800 faculty members, was agreed to in 2021 and expires August 14, 2024. We look forward to productive bargaining in good faith with the faculty union leadership and to reaching a fair contract that addresses key issues in a way that benefits the faculty as well as the entire campus community. Negotiations will begin this spring.

On this webpage, which we will keep up to date, you will find news and FAQs about the bargaining process.
