The Faculty Union of the San Francisco Art Institute is a Chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). Please join our Facebook page at “SFAI Faculty Union”! Balliger has always been an active participant in the Union. She served as President from 2011–2018, led Collective Bargaining contract negotiations twice, and she has attended the AAUP Summer Institute and California Conference. The SFAI Faculty Union negotiated a tenure system in 2005, and SFAI is one of the only private colleges west of the Mississippi to be unionized and have a Collective Bargaining Agreement. Balliger has organized labor solidarity events on campus, including “Campus Equity Day” and the “Union of Unions,” which sought to bring together the tenured and adjunct faculty, staff, and student union at SFAI. Our Chapter represents the tenured faculty and in 2017 the adjunct faculty at SFAI negotiated a first-ever contract as a new SEIU chapter.
