Statement Regarding NLRB Decision

April 21, 2017

The university was notified today (Friday, April 21) of the decision by the Regional Director of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to authorize an election of the university's undergraduate student resident advisors. An election will be held at a time, date and location to be determined. While the university will continue to cooperate with the NLRB in this process, the university continues to believe that the NLRB’s union election process should not be applied to students in our residential life program, which is an integral part of the educational experience of our undergraduate students. We will continue to share our views with resident advisors as this process moves forward.
