UNI_logo_v3_newUniversity Caucus Statement of Principles and Goals:

We are employees of state universities – serving as instructors, custodians, nurses, administrative employees, food service workers, librarians, electricians, security officers, lab technicians, maintenance employees and countless other positions. We are equally essential to carrying out the important missions of our campuses and institutions. We are united in our efforts to fulfill the Texas constitutional mandate to “maintain universities of the first-class”.
