Along with being a large employer, PSU is administratively complex and navigating through the system can be challenging even when you've been here for a while. We are part of a large system of state universities and fall under the umbrella of the Oregon University System (OUS). There are the Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) that govern our behavior and the expectations the University has of its employees and we are also governed by Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS). In addition, PSU has three unions: Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 503 representing classified employees, American Association of University Professors (AAUP) representing full-time faculty and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 3571 representing adjunct faculty.
