Welcome!

EMUFT is local 9102 of the American Federation of Teachers. We are over 100 full-time lecturers and library staff, over 600 part-time lecturers, and together we are half of the teaching faculty at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. EMUFT is a member-driven organization. As members of EMUFT we can improve the conditions for teaching at EMU and create better educational spaces for our students. The more who are involved, the more we can do to improve teaching and learning.
