Legislative Agenda

Working for you

UUP’s Legislative Agenda is developed annually to reflect our advocacy priorities for that year. This agenda focuses on issues that impact our members, public higher education and the institutions and programs in SUNY. Advocacy on these issues continues throughout the year, and takes place in Albany as well as in every legislative district across New York State. Take a look at our legislative priorities below and then head over to our “Get Involved” page to see how you can join our fight!
