About Us

Faculty Democracy is a broad-based association of NYU faculty dedicated to bringing transparency and accountability to decision-making at the university. It is a forum for the voices for active faculty who are deeply concerned about the concentration of power upward into the strata of senior administrators and the corresponding erosion of faculty vote in shared governance. Faculty Democracy is independent of the representative system of faculty governance embodied in the Faculty Council and its membership is composed of more than 250 full-time faculty. Its orbit of interest extends to all teaching staff at the university, including contract faculty, part-timers and graduate teaching assistants. On this website we have posted several representative petitions and public letters issued by various campus organizations since 2005.

If you are a member of the NYU faculty and would like to join the Faculty Democracy listserv, please register.
