Academic-related professional staff
UCU is the voice for academic-related professional staff working in UK higher education.
Through our national and local initiatives, and through the academic-related manifesto, we are focusing on the key role that academic-related professional staff play both as part of the academic team in higher education and as members of the union.
We aim to ensure that:
- the contribution of academic-related professional staff to higher education is acknowledged through higher pay, better opportunities for personal and career development, improved working conditions, and an appropriate work-life balance
- higher education institutions properly value and recognise the contribution and expertise of academic-related professional staff, particularly in the composition of their governing bodies.
UCU is strengthened by the increased involvement of academic-related professional members at all levels of the union.
Academic-related professional staff within UCU
The UCU academic-related staff committee advises the national executive committee. Any academic-related professional staff member can stand for the committee.
The committee is elected during the academic-related staff annual meeting, which is open to all academic-related professional staff members.
