Wesleyan is the first university in the country to voluntarily recognize an undergraduate student union. After several negotiation sessions beginning in April 2022, the Resident Advisor contract was ratified by the union on December 19, 2022.This contract covers approximately 100 student workers including Resident Advisors, Community Advisors, and House Managers. Special thanks to Toby Bates, Frances Koerting, and Maureen Isleib as well as to the student workers who put in long hours to finalize the contract. Human Resources is conducting training sessions with Residential Life supervisors/staff to ensure a successful implementation of the new contract.
