Graduate Student Strike

The Department of Religion respects the right of students to collectively bargain, including to strike, and will not retaliate in any way against graduate students who choose to strike. The department will neither report nor provide the names of anyone who participates in the strike.

Regardless of whether one participates in the strike, the faculty in the Department of Religion are committed to continuing to support and advise all of our students in pursuing their own research and in progressing towards completion of their degree.
