What Goes Into a State Legislative Candidate Endorsement?

 

The UHPA Board of Directors has a designated Political Endorsement Committee, composed of faculty from various UH campuses, to review state legislative candidate positions and conduct interviews with candidates to formulate endorsement decisions.

It is important to note that UHPA did not make endorsements in all races.

The Political Endorsement Committee pulled no punches and asked pointed questions in different categories:

  • Reinstating tenured positions
  • Affordable housing for younger faculty
  • Pension and healthcare contributions
  • Collective bargaining rights
